How We Started

Crafting Culinary Dreams at Calafia Kitchen

In the bustling streets of Livermore, the vibrant spirit of Calafia Kitchen came to life in January 2023. Beyond our welcoming doors isn't just a place to savor delicious meals, but the realization of a dream that has been nurtured for a lifetime. Our owner, who once mastered the intricacies of construction management, decided to embark on a flavorful journey into the world of gastronomy. Transitioning from the structured world of construction to the ever-evolving realm of food may sound like a leap, but for us, it was a natural progression.


Just like constructing a building, where each brick and beam has its own story, at Calafia Kitchen, every ingredient and flavor finds its special place. With a solid foundation from our previous profession, we started building our culinary sanctuary, one recipe and one friendly smile at a time.


But here's the heartwarming twist – Calafia Kitchen isn't just the story of one dreamer; it's a tale of community. Every step of the way, the warmth, passion, and expertise of our owner's wife and our close-knit circle of friends have been poured into this venture. You can feel our collective love and dedication in every corner of the restaurant, from the cozy ambiance to the delightful dishes served.


Calafia Kitchen isn't just a place to eat; it's a living testament to the magic that happens when dreams are pursued together. We invite you to be a part of our story, to share in the joy, faith, and love that make Calafia Kitchen truly special. Welcome to our flavorful family!
