After literally a handshake deal and with extremely generous help from Jack Croul  (along with changing architects and plans after 11 months in the project ) the Cannery Seafood of the Pacific opened in 2002.  Initially, there was not a lot of interest in taking on this new and very unusual project. It quickly became something very, very special to everyone in the family.  We converted a rundown old two story seafood and bar into a bar and sushi restaurant upstairs and a white tablecloth bar and restaurant downstairs. Along with a beautiful patio on the bay with a 225 foot dock so guests could come by boat to dinner.  This helped the location resume being a landmark destination.

Sadly in 2006, we were forced to close Sonora Cafe.   The landlord wanted to quadruple our rent making it impossible to stay open.  The building lay dormant for 9 years!
