Castro and El Camino Real redevelopment project

    1. Petition by

      Sufi Coffee Shop - Sufism Cultural Center

"The process of transforming the green solid into a refined cup of coffee is the same process that happens to human beings from being coarse to becoming refined human beings," said Sufi Coffee Shop owner Parviz Rasti.

What is Sufism? Some describe it as the mystical side of Islam, just as the kabala is to Judaism. Rasti defines Sufism as being a "major mystical path" that originated 6,000 to 7,000 years ago, is connected to all religions while not being a part of any of them, and is more like Taoism or Zen Buddhism. "Sufism begins with love and ends in love," learn more about us at the Sufi Coffee Shop website.

With regards,

The Sufi Coffee Shop,

Parviz Rasti

      I am the owner of Gochi. and It will ruin my life. that includes my wife and my 10 months old daughter too.

      My wife and I have been saving since high school, and spent all money for this restaurant.

      I thought I had at least 5 years lease contract, but it turned out I was wrong.

      When I bought this restaurant, it was single agent,broker, he hid the fact that this location may be developed in near future. We found out 4 months later, it was half way done construction.

      So, I went to see the broker and asked him what was going on, and then he kept saying that it was my fault that I didn't read lease contract all the way. But I asked him if there was any condition when I signed and he said no. That is obvious that he lied to us.

      So Please stop this and help us. We will be great restaurant if you give us more time.

      The peaceful atmosphere, kind hospitality, and spiritual ambiance makes Sufi Cafe an oasis of peace in which to sip an extraordinary coffee - or to eat wonderful soup and panini sandwiches. It is my go to cafe in Mountain View. I value this business and its owners.
