The Sufi Coffee Shop is a rare find. You won't taste a better cup of coffee anywhere, and the experience is simply out of this world. The proprietor roasts 2-3 small batches of coffee a week, so it's always fresh. He waits patiently while you consider the possibilities, then he grinds the beans you request for an individually dripped cup of coffee that you can savor inside or in the peaceful outdoor patio.
Another house specialty is the Turkish coffee, or you might enjoy one of the many delicious espresso drinks and smoothies on the menu. If you're hungry for more, you can take your pick of pastries, paninis, and homemade soup.
For more than 11 years, this little gem has graced the local Mountain View community. It may not be quite what you expect when you first cross the transom... but if you're looking for a unique haven from the daily grind, you might find it's just what you need.
Bay area best people and best coffee – Compassion at the sufi coffee shop
I was in a coffee shop in Mountain View (Sufi coffee shop) last week, on W. El Camino Real and Castro doing my homework. An Indian Family came in, older man and wife and a young couple who seemed to be married and expecting a new comer soon. The owner of the coffee shop welcomed them and was very courteous especially toward the old Indian man. The old Indian man approached the owner and asked him some questions about Sufism. I did want to be a busy body so I kept my head down and contiued doing what I was doing before, reading my text book. They were served and went out to the patio garden to relax to drink their drinks. The owner of the coffee shop, after a while went out and sat with them. Later he gave the old Indian man a Sufi magazine (free a $6.00 value) and was extremely compassionate toward him
Later that day he shared what the Indian family told him.
He said this man is a Sikh and he was surprised why he wasn't wearing his turban. So the coffee shop owner asked his daughter about his turban. She told him some people had made comments about his turban and so he is scared to wear his turban in public.
Later on that day as I was contemplating over the Indian fellow and how the Sufi coffee shop owner was so caring and kind, I thought really what it takes to become a true human being...................!?
The Best coffee....dripped – Fresh, genuine and cool.
Very, very good coffee......the owner is not a commercial person and cares a lot for what he does.
This is a great place, please go there to learn with an open mind.

Best coffee and spirit in South Bay – If you're looking for a great tasting cup of coffee and soothing atmosphere, Sufi coffee shop is the place. Variety of coffee and mocha flavor drinks. I was told that coffee beans are roasted few times a week in small patches for freshness and quality. On different occasions, I tried Perfect Kobari and Yauco from the menu and they were magnificent as it was described in the coffee shop's menu. The shop has a patio garden which is worth a visit alone. It has a very serene and beautiful atmosphere. This coffee shop is the place to sooth your mind and satisfy your taste for great coffee, yet let your mind gets relaxed away from the daily busy life and being evoked by the great writings on the shop's wall. Don't forget to try the Panini sandwiches.
Coffee evolution – This is an evolutionary place.....everything is evolving.....the coffee, the ambience, people and truely it is out of ordinary place. The coffee is heaven, smooth aromatic and peaceful. This coffee shop offers you what you don't expect to have...it goes above your expectation. It is just wonderful.
The Best coffee ever and the best heart. – Only I want to say Sufi coffee shop is the nicest place I have ever been. Sometimes I've seen reviews that seems not to fit the place. It makes me very sad. Sufi coffee shop is a place to go look for God, it is unpretentiously spiritual and serene. The coffee is the best, dripped individually to order.
Hope more people go there and keep it going.
P.S. The old man working there has a bit of hearing problem!
A local treasure... – I had to search to find the place but it was more than worth it. On cold days, I warm up on the tasty soups and pannini. On hot days, their smoothies are great - fresh, no artificial aftertaste and very yummy. Always, the best coffee ever and each cup really does taste as its made - freshly ground right before its brewed and dripped with old-world dedicated care by the proprietors. As far as the atmosphere, all I can say is it fits any mood I'm in, whether work-mode or needing stimulation or peace. I've been coming here since the place opened and now would not go anywhere else. Once you spot it, access is easy and nurturing to the spirit!
Simply beautiful... – A lovely and intimate place to go to at any time of day but I must say that nothing compares to sitting in the back patio in the early evening. Small lights surround the entire patio creating a peaceful and romantic space to be in alone or with someone. Perfect for reading, working, talking, or simply relaxing. I live one minute away and feel privileged to have such an amazing place only a few steps away. A wonderful place to visit and to just take in the experience.
More than a cafe... – Sufi is perhaps the most pleasant place to sit in urban South Bay. In addition to the many rare and expertly prepared coffee offerings, Sufi?s back patio and friendly owners are a real draw. The patio is a shaded oasis of plants, chessboards, and?if you?re willing?profound conversation. I highly recommend dropping by for a moment of unparalleled coffee, kind conversation, and peaceful reflection.
