Is this a joke? No property owners want it, the area's is zoned for residential so the city will have to make an exception, no one wants free labor (which no doubt exploits some one down the line), and it primarily serves the illegal immigrant population which is draining our state and city of revenue while ruining our system of public education.
I'd like to set up a coffeeshop out of my garage in old Mountain View, in a residential zone. I'm going to ask the city for an exception. I'm going to offer a free cup of coffee to anyone who might oppose it. My employees will all be illegal and I ain't going to pay them squat. Oh, and I'll be seeking donations for my project.

The last comment is false. While most of the day workers are immigrants of unknown legal status, some were definitely born here. There are even some white folks or "anglos" as director Maria Marroquin calls them.

I throw out all manure, "EFMohammedMartinez," including yours. You don't hear all the whining from the other guys -- many of them militant race-baiters just like you -- but I get it from them too.
I have a better idea: save us both the hassle and quit posting here.
