I am Proud to be El Sobrante's FIRST ever nominated Restaurant for Best of the Bay TV on Kron 4 For "Best American Restaurant" I am pleased to represent our El Sobrante Area in such a positive light. With this introduction to our area, other restaurants are now following in my footsteps.
I am also the first restaurant in El Sobrante to receive San Francisco Chronicles/SFGATE.com 2010 Best of Baylist Award For "Best Breakfast/Cheap Eats". I am sure others are to follow.
I have received Positive reviews from East Bay Express "Country meets Berkeley, doing it simply and attractively"
Numerous recognition in the Contra Costa Times.
Been awarded the "Business of the year 2002" by the El Sobrante Chamber of Commerce.
Received special Recognition from California State Senator Tom Torlakson for my work in the community.
I will continue to strive to improve not only my skills as my cafe's working chef but the skills of my staff also.
While I have a few Irons in the fire, I can not announce them until the deals are Iron-Clad, so continue to follow me as I grow and improve.
I am honored to work with many charities year round to assist them in achieving their goals of success and fund raising.
I will continue my work in the community and strive to do so with just as much of an open- heart , compassion, diplomacy, empathy, love and spirit as I have in the past.
In Spring of 2011 I will open a brand new location in Pinole, Ca. I am very excited.
I'd like to say how much I appreciate the loyalty of my staff, guest, family and friends, this abundance has kept me humble and lead to my success.
I would like to close with a quote from the Dalai Lama:
"An authentic attitude of compassion doesn't change, even faced with another person's negative behavior."
"If you can't beat me, join me" lol
