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.

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!

Devin: Hey Ken, we have been looking forward to this for a long time! I know this location means a lot to you, as Pocket residents. Can you start out by telling us a little about yourselves?
Ken: I started Device with my wife, Melissa. We opened in 2013, after about a year and a half of prep. We ran the first location until opening Ice Blocks in 2018. This will be our third, and perhaps final, location.
We’ve lived here for about 6 years. We like the community, the feel of the Pocket. It’s welcoming, not pretentious and it’s close to the things we need, downtown and the freeways. There’s good shopping with Nugget, Bel Air, Delta Shores. The neighborhoods are nice and quiet. We love walking on the levee, the bike paths, the parks. Garcia Bend is awesome. Marriott Park is where we spend most of our time. My only complaint is that there hasn’t been enough to do with the family, especially family dining options.
