In 1965 when brothers Al and Joe Scoma heard about a small coffee shop on the Wharf that was for sale, little did they know they were on the road to creating a landmark restaurant. The brothers bought the tiny, six-stool coffee shop on Pier 47 that served local fishermen breakfast and burgers and began the long and ultimately successful process of turning the hidden local hang-out into one of the nation’s highest grossing independent restaurants.
Al Scoma always believed in working hard, enjoying life and being the best in the business. He attributed his success as a restaurateur to the variety of career paths he took before his restaurant days.
Mr. Scoma’s professional career began after his release from the Navy following World War II. He worked for a San Francisco Bay Area meat company where he learned about food handling criteria and excelled in sales. He continually worked to meet the needs of restaurant operators while surpassing state health and quality standards.
