“Mudraker's Cafe has been in business since 2006. Prior to the pandemic, Mudrakers has always been a  great place to eat, drink and make new friends!

For over 9 months now, Hazim Bazian, the owner, has struggled to stay in business with NO financial assistance (the city of Berkeley exhausted their small business funds). Needless to say,the pandemic has had a huge impact on his customer traffic. Many neighbors (like myself) have continued to frequent the Cafe but it is JUST NOT ENOUGH!

Time has shown that no one will help other than possibly the people like yourself reading this plea!

PLEASE make a contribution to save a neighborhood business and THANK YOU!”
