With a heavy heart, the ownership of Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe has decided to permanently close operations effective immediately.


We are grateful and appreciative to our talented staff for their tireless efforts and creative contributions over the years.  You are Rudy.  You made what it was: a continuous award winning diner where everyone that “Walked Among Us” were always welcomed.


20 years ago we strived to create that same environment and ethos that the Yee Family did at Eugene’s Ranch House for 40 years before us and now it is time for Rudy to pass the torch.  The slogan “The Best People on Earth Walk Through These Doors” was written on both of our front doors for a combined 60 plus years, this must say something about the community that we will always love.


Many thanks to all our customers for your patronage and support over the years, we will miss serving your preferred Brew For Breakfast and Late Night Munchies.  We wish you well.


I Am Rudy


Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe opened in 2002 in Emeryville, CA with a second location in Uptown Oakland in 2011 (retired in 2019).  Rudy’s was born from a desire to create a restaurant where people of all walks of life can feel welcome and eat honest food in a fun atmosphere.

We are committed to serving our community with an eatery that is reasonably priced, family friendly and that cares about your well being.

When you are at Rudy’s Can’t Fail Cafe, you are Rudy.
