Cafe Pomegranate opened in 2003 as owner Affie Mahini’s vision to create a casual dinning experience in the heart of San Jose. The cafe blends her love of cooking with her passion to feed people. Drawing from her family’s Persian background Mahini has created an eclectic mix of foods that feature the best from Iranian, Mediterranian, Mexican and Californian cuisines. The cafe is located across the street from San Jose State University and just behind the new city hall. In the seven years we have been open we have become a favorite lunch spot for students and faculty of SJSU as well as the staff of the city. Stop by and try our modern twist on rustic eats!
