If you’re looking for Mediterranean food in Castro Valley, Café Rumi is pretty much your ONLY option and they do a good job! Prices $8-$15 Beef/lamb salad plate was very good. Also serves coffee and small selection of desserts.

We had heard of the chai and were curious. It is very tasty and unique. It is small and has a local flare. Friendly staff too. Had bagel and breakfast pita, all fresh and nice portion.

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.

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.
