Opening Spring 2017 in Oakland's Laurel District


Degrees Plato is a locally-owned, bottle shop, taproom, and kitchen located in the heart of Oakland’s Laurel District. Rich Allen and Mercedes Sperling, a husband-and-wife team who live just blocks away, envisioned the café to make craft beer approachable in a safe and inviting space for families.

Our Story

Family Friendly Space

This “third space” community gathering place is focused on offering the neighborhood an inviting atmosphere that brings people together over high quality, specialty craft beer – and a casual dining experience highlighting the fresh ingredients of Latin-flavored fare. Degrees Plato brings a brewer-focused craft beer program to the Laurel.
