Rumi Cafe in Castro Valley is a lovely little face tucked in an otherwise not overly attractive shopping strip. Pretty good to vary friendly service and mostly good food items. They have great coffee! Cannot wait to go back for their cappuccino.

Stopped by this cafe on our way from Fresno to San Francisco. What a wonderful treat! In my 45 years... have never had a better bagel. Charming cafe!

Good gyros and rice kabob plates. Prices fair. Small menu but also a coffee shop with tasty sweets so kudos to that. WiFi and ability to sit and read. Kid friendly. Local. All good things

This is a popular Castro Valley lunch and coffee shop. Often it is crowded with students from a nearby middle school. A wide variety of lunch dishes and pastries are available. I have especially enjoyed their hummus plate and visit regularly with friends and family.

My group has been going here once a week after exercise for several years. The coffee and food are excellent. Service is friendly; not as good lately, but still a winner.
