Yali's opening at CITRIS

Yali’s opens in Qualcomm Cafe at CITRIS headquarters

Qualcomm Cafe will be returning to the UC Berkeley campus with a soft opening on Wednesday, February 28, 2018. The cafe is reopening under new vendor: Yali’s, a family owned and operated cafe serving the Berkeley campus since 1999. All three Yali’s locations, at Oxford Street, Stanley Hall, and Valley Life Sciences Building, cater to a loyal customer base of students and Berkeley locals.

The cafe will return at the same location on the 2nd floor of CITRIS and the Banatao Institute headquarters in Sutardja Dai Hall, where students, faculty, and staff on northside can conveniently study and grab food. Qualcomm will debut a new menu featuring cuisine by local businesses focused on sustainability and community including Equator Coffees & Teas and Firebrand Artisan Breads.

Equator Coffees & Teas is a wholesale coffee roaster headquartered in Marin County that received the “National Small Business of the Year” award from the U.S. Small Business Administration in 2016 and becoming the first California coffee roaster to become a certified B Corporation. Oakland’s Firebrand Artisan Breads is partnered with philanthropic companies like Upward Roots, the Sierra Club, St. Vincent De Paul, No Kid Hungry, and Oakland food banks.
