Mon Café is a coffee shop located in the heart of Washington Manor. The name Mon Café means "my café" in French, but all of us at Mon Café believe that the café belongs to the whole community. Owned and operated by Manami Wegner,a local retired woman, Mon Café is a community cafe tucked deep within a residential neighborhood in San Leandro, California. It is cozy and full of laughter and rich with the culture of our own real people. Coffee and food are made by local baristas, who are loved and supported by our neighborhood customers. The musicians who play live music at Mon Café are also local, and the beautiful arts and crafts that line the walls are by local artists. There is no other Mon Café like us in the world!
All different types of people love Mon Café. No matter what walk of life you are from, you are welcomed with a warm smile and a delicious cup of coffee or tea. Busy mothers duck into the cafe and run out with a cup of coffee. Teachers meet to talk about new school projects.
