The Pocket Greenhaven Community Association’s featured business is Caffe Latte, join us as we get to know its new co-owner Fadi Tashman. He and his brother, Suleiman recently purchased the restaurant from its longtime owners Teresa and Daniel LaVelle who are enjoying retirement.
Devin: Hi Fadi, thanks for taking the time to talk to me. Congratulations on your new business! Can you tell me a little bit about yourself and your background?
Fadi: Thanks Devin! We are excited to be here! It has been my passion and my dream to run my own restaurant for years! While I was attending San Jose State, I started working at a restaurant called Squat and Gobble. After graduating I was promoted to manager and really enjoyed learning the whole business, but making people happy is always my number one target.

Congratulations to Dennis & Christine Hobart at 7485 Pocket Rd for being named #pocketyardofthemonth for December 2020!
Thanks to everyone who shared their holiday joy with the community, especially our neighbors at 7080 Rivercove Way and 743 Clipper Way who finished 2nd and 3rd in the voting!
We got a little distracted in November, our apologies. Please join us in congratulating our #PocketSpookyYard winners: 6550 Riverside! So scary!
The Pocket Greenhaven Community Association was founded on the belief that, “Our community is one of respect that does not merely tolerate and accept differences, it celebrates them. No community member shall be made to feel unwelcome in their neighborhood.” We recognize, however, that this ideal has not always been the reality for many in our community and around our region, a burden borne disproportionately by our Black neighbors. And so, we say, Black Lives Matter.
The Pocket Greenhaven Community Association was founded on the belief that, “All community members, regardless of age, gender, national origin, political preferences, race, religion, residential status or sexual orientation must be treated fairly and have equitable access to our organization, their representatives in government and to the natural and cultural amenities of our neighborhood.” We recognize, however, that too often, our government, our schools and, yes, our police have failed to provide the same level of service and protections to our Black neighbors. And so, we say, Black Lives Matter.
The Pocket Greenhaven Community Association was founded on the belief that, “Ensuring the Pocket-Greenhaven neighborhood remain the safest neighborhood in the city must continue to be a top priority.” We recognize, however, that while we remain grateful for the brave men and women of Sacramento PD who help ensure that safety, there remains a great need to rectify the historic and ongoing abuse towards people of color especially the Black community and to make racial justice and equity a reality. And so, we say, Black Lives Matter.
The Pocket-Greenhaven Community Association joins our neighbors in calling out: “All Lives cannot Matter until Black Lives Matter”
We join our nation in mourning the senseless murder of George Floyd and are saddened by violent reactions to peaceful protest.
