We - Wafa & Mounir Bahloul - grew up in a big family where sharing and hospitality were our everyday. There was always a joyful gathering around food, it didn’t matter what was the occasion or what time of the day, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There were always three main ingredients; food, story, and laughs.
KAYMA is an Arabic word for a nomadic dwelling, a place that feels like home whether it is permanent or temporary. Kayma is a place where you feel loved and safe, where you chat and laugh without forgetting the best part - feeding until you are full. Our Kayma will be the place where we share our hospitality, customs, stories, and recipes.
KAYMA Algerian Eatery is the authentic Algerian cuisine and baked goods made by hand from the best ingredients, passed on grandma’s recipes and stories. Our Bay Area is about to discover a unique taste & flavor of healthy high-quality Algerian food and treats all to be shared and served with a smile with you.

Wafa started cooking and baking with her mother at home, in wedding celebrations and special occasions. That was something she wanted to master. Then, she took her passion for cooking and Baking into the next level she went to culinary school and studied Algerian and French pastry before moving to the Bay Area.
But, Mounir starts learning how to cook once he moved to the Bay Area where he uses to call his mother and ask her about recipes and the food he loves.
Wafa and Mounir got married but still use grandma’s recipes in everyday meals and love sharing it with friends and neighbors. But now they want to expend it to everyone that walks through the streets of San Francisco in order to revive those stories, flavors, and laughs. Then, Wafa and Mounir Together worked in the food business in the Bay Area until they joined La Cocina in 2018, and took the leap of starting their own dream coffee – restaurant place and catering business.
