I worked at the Coffee Roast as a teenager, and a bit during college. It was my favorite place to hang out, and Ed and Diane were wonderful to work for. I will always remember Diane's smiles, her positive can do energy, her encouragement, and of course her beautiful flowers and gardening.
I will also never forget the very best surprise birthday party ever, I got to celebrate at the Coffee Roast for my sweet 16. It was a breakfast party with Diane's famous zucchini carrot muffins, her amazing biscotti, and, of course, fabulous coffee drinks & fresh squeezed juice for everyone. I felt very special that day. Such wonderful hospitality, always! Diane, I hope you know how very much your presence in Pleasanton is missed. You were wonderful.
