Meet Sonny Yoo
Besides baking, cooking and serving fabulous food, Sonny Yoo’s business is all about connecting. It may be a quick and pleasant exchange when you pop in for a fresh-baked muffin on the go, or a long chat with a friend while savouring a cup of espresso. Connections are important and more meaningful in a small town, and they’re also much easier to form, says Sonny. Without the hurried lifestyle and busy-ness of city distractions, people who live in Terrace take the time for one another and it makes life richer. “It is easy to connect with people here,” he says, and even easier if you throw delicious food into the mix.
Besides the ease of forming connections and relationships, Sonny also appreciates Terrace’s natural beauty and vast outdoors. “It’s beautiful,” he says. When Sonny is able to get away from the coffee shop, one of his favourite things to do is spend time outdoors, especially if it involves fishing.
Sonny went into business for himself because he had creative business ideas that he wanted to put into action. His entrepreneurial spirit has helped to keep his business viable, but he also knows that he owes a great deal of thanks to his faithful customers and fans. They have been loyal and supportive since he first opened in 2002 and he is looking forward to what the future holds for Cafenara.
Social. Family-Friendly. Delicious.
Cafenara is more than a cafe; it’s a place to meet other locals and to connect over a cup of fair trade coffee. Cafenara is well-known for its unique coffee flavour palette, made possible through roasting its beans in-house fresh daily. Pair up your blend with a hearty bowl of Cafenara’s soup-of-the-day, original-recipe fresh baking or tasty sandwich. Grab a morning cup of steaming java, stop in for a savoury lunch or pop in after work for a made-from-scratch comfort food pick-me-up. Cafenara also provides catering for events and meetings of all sizes. Group bookings available.
Cafenara was the 2014 recipient of the Terrace Chamber of Commerce Inclusive Workplace Award.
