More than 18 years ago I started on my culinary journey.  My mission was to gain a diverse experience working in some of the best restaurants.  During my journey, I ventured to Maui, where I learned local dishes and preparations.   During my time on the island I worked along side Chef Raul Bermudez, a very well known and talented chef where I learned dishes from his family and it thought me how important family meals are with love ones... It was around that time that I embraced the name and the creation of Viola and Agnes' Cafe evolved.   

The dream I had on the islands has come true for me and my family in a way I could have never imagined! Here is Nassau Bay Texas for the last 3 and a half years the crew and I have worked so hard to be a great neighborhood cafe for our surrounding community and we are asking for a bit of help to keep the dream going!  

I received information about a potential space available just around the way from us so that we can keep the business right here in Nassau Bay where we feel it should be. I gathered my savings and investments, and I applied for a small SBA loan to cover the cost of unlocking the doors.  Although excited, reality kicked in very fast. Nothing in the building was reusable.  The space needed a total and complete makeover, all the old equipment and furnishings had to be removed– literally EVERYTHING!

Accordingly, I have to start from scratch.  The overwhelming number of changes and upgrades quickly blurred my vision of the beautiful family-owned restaurant that I always dreamed of; which is why I am reaching out to you on Kickstarter asking for your support. With your support and donations, Kickstarter will be used to purchase necessary kitchen equipment and will help “bring life” to the dining space by adding art, tiles and good ole southern charm to the space.  Many prayers have made my dream a reality by bringing my exciting new restaurant to Nassau Bay  But, it takes a community to raise a restaurant, which is why I need your help in order to bring the best new restaurant to Nassau Bay Tx.

Help us reach $10,000 over our goal so we can get our outdoor seating ready for summer. Also to purchase our "Soul 2 Go" mobile! We have been thinking of doing our own togo delivery to the neighborhood so we can bring the food you love at the cafe directly to your door minutes after being garnished by chef!

Without risk there are no rewards. Opening a restaurant is risky. With over ten years of experiences in the restaurant industry, I have confidence in my ability to provide extraordinary food, professional service, and to build a restaurant where guests are ALWAYS welcomed.
 

I understand the inherent challenges in opening a restaurant, such as: staffing, construction delays, funds and many minor issues that can easily become major. However, I am confident that I will diligently work hard to ensure goals are timely met. I will also communicate in a timely manner any and all accomplishments and/or pitfalls.
