the cannery cafe

Here at the Cannery Cafe, we believe in the power of community. To come together and share time, pleasant company, conversation, and delicious food and drink. In July of 2014, Oakland based Blue Heron Catering’s Debbie Pfisterer and longtime Bay Area chef Jeff Rosen opened the Cannery Cafe here in the Hayward Area Historical Society museum to share their vision of community and soulful, honest cooking that featured the bounty of our wonderful Bay Area foodshed.

We value the relationships we have made with our customers, our farmers, and ranchers as well as the community at large. Our mission and responsibility as a green certified business are to practice sustainability and resource conservation while providing you a great meal and place to meet for reasonable prices!

The cafe, located just outside the Community Gallery, offers a fabulous menu for breakfast and lunch during the week and an delicious brunch menu on the weekend.
