Airstream Trailer Coffee Kiosk at Flowerland Nursery

Lately food trucks pop up all over the Bay Area; former roach coaches are the new gourmet dining spots. But this is the first vintage Airstream trailer food truck I’ve seen and it doesn’t travel. It’s set up on blocks inside Flowerland Nursery on Solano Avenue in Albany (California–next door to Berkeley) and run by Local 123 Cafe.

I can’t think of a better place to enjoy a good cup of coffee than in a lovely garden. The lovely folks at Flowerland Nursery put interesting chairs and tables throughout the nursery, turning the whole place into a sort of garden café. You can get your coffee and then sit among the palms, the native plants, fruit trees or climbing vines to enjoy it.

And when you finish your coffee, you can take home the chair you sat on or the plant you sat beside (for a price of course).

You are so right about roach coaches becoming gourmet dining spots. I laugh when the young kids at work go to have lunch at “the trucks”.

Great painting. Love how you painting the airstream behind all the foliage.


I’m glad you could make it out behind the foliage–it’s kind of hidden from where I sat. And I didn’t even notice your typo until I read your second comment and then had to look for it. Jana


What a nice comment! Are you in the Bay Area? I tried to figure it out from your website but couldn’t tell. Cool picture of the big boat though and your music is really interesting. Jana
