Mocha Cafe Pastry

Minoo & Fojan


2720 Washington Blvd, Arlington, VA, 22201

Never having gone to culinary school, Minoo kept her dreams of opening of her own bakery alive. Psychologist by day, and passionate baker by night, she would spend most of her free time baking her own invented recipes. Aside from having a passion for baking, she was also raised in a huge Persian family where food was a major part of culture. Alongside her, is her youngest daughter of two, Fojan, who stood by her mother’s side as Minoo would fill up the house with “sweet and savory smells of fresh baked pastries and goodies”.

mochaHaving studied French culture, history and language, Fojan realized much of the French culture and specially food, had a lot in common with Persian. Therefore, she’d help her mother combine recipes from certain French and Persian pastries together to form a new invention. Together, they strived to perfect traditional family recipes, as well as inventing new flavors.

After spending years dreaming, hoping, and baking, the two were finally able to share their creations, and their passion for others to taste; and finally, Mocha Cafe and Pastry was born.

With its cozy, French-European themed atmosphere, and its combination of French and Persian decadent desserts, food and drinks, Mocha Cafe & Pastry with the motto “Life is Short, Eat Dessert First”, is surely a one of a kind.
