Restaurants go way back in the Filgas family. Joe's namesake, his Grandpa Joe and Grandma Frances owned and operated the Samoa Cookhouse in the early 50's. They had actually worked there since the late 20's after immigrating from Czechoslovakia to the United States. If you visit the Samoa Cookhouse today and view the large pictures in the Museum you'll see Grandpa Joe and Grandma Frances working the Cookhouse. Joe's Dad Milton, his Uncle Bob, and Aunt Marguerite all grew up at this location living in the small house that still remains. Joe joined his bride in the family business full time on June 2, 2012 building their second cafe. Joe, with the help of many, completed and opened Cafe Nooner Too! @ 2910 E (Grotto & E) in friendly Henderson Center, Eureka on December 3, 2012 and has now joined Lorrena in managing both cafes. Cafe Nooner L.L.C. was established in July of 2013.
