Thai Heart is pleased to open its doors and welcome you into a new traditional Thai atmosphere with authentic, home-style Thai cooking. We have carefully blended traditional and modern Thai style in both the décor and the cuisine in order to provide you with a very special dining experience.
Our Chefs in Thai Heart have many years experience cooking Thai food not only in the US but also at their family’s restaurant in Thailand. They bring an authentic style and flavor not found in most Thai restaurants in the Scott Valley Area. Their extensive experience and true passion for cooking is evident in the intricate flavors and delicate blending of herbs and spices. Of course, there are a few of the usual spicy Thai dishes for those who like the fire of Thai chilis. However, there are many mild dishes as well. But whether cooking spicy or mild, our Chefs carefully prepare each dish from the freshest authentic Thai ingredients. Thai food you will find anywhere.
Bruce (Bruno) Davis and Frank Mongetta, two old friends and former army buddies, along with Frank’s wife Diane, had a dream to go into the restaurant business. They wanted to serve the kind of food they loved, backyard BBQ with large portions in a family-friendly atmosphere.
In July of 1997, Bruno’s BBQ Restaurant & Catering in Scotts Valley opened its doors to a flood of people and has been busy ever since. Over the years, Bruno’s has earned many wonderful restaurant reviews and awards. Among them are the Santa Cruz Metro “Goldies” Silver award for Best Barbeque every year since they’ve been open as well as the Scotts Valley Chamber of Commerce 2002 Business of the Year. Scotts Valley Banner voted 2007 Best Rave and Fav BBQ Restaurant. Bruno’s also supports the community in the way of donations to many of our local charities & schools all year long.
In 2002, Frank Mongetta passed away. His wife Diane, along with her new partner Rosanna Herrera, now run Bruno’s BBQ Restaurant & Catering “The Original California BBQ”. The two ladies are determined to keep the founding spirit and dream alive while adding their own unique flair and ideas as they successfully go forward and grow. Something Frank would have been proud of.
Just this past couple of years Diane has decided to move on to greener pastures and left Rosanna to continue the legacy. So in the time honored tradition of Bruno’s Rosanna takes this opportunity to invite you to come home to Bruno’s Come home to the Original California BBQ!

After receiving a Bachelors of Science degree in Business and Marketing from the University of Oregon in 1968, Erik Johnson, born in Oakland and raised on the Monterey Peninsula, moved to San Francisco and began working as a cost accountant. In February, 1969, Johnson went on a six month backpacking trip that took him across Europe and North Africa. Upon his return, Johnson worked as a security officer, a cook and food server at a small burger and shake restaurant and as an accountant. In January, 1971, Johnson relocated to Santa Cruz and ventured into real estate. As it became clear that he was not suited to be a realtor, Johnson began to have ambitions of opening his own business. In September, 1973, after making unsuccessful bids on a health food store, ice cream shop and doughnut shop, Johnson purchased a 600 square foot location in Scotts Valley for $429. Borrowing the amount from his father, Johnson signed a note to cover equipment costs and took over the lease of the former Tartan Bakery. Lacking experience in the restaurant industry, Johnson quickly enlisted the help of his family. Ray Johnson, Erik’s Father, created homemade soups, his mother, Dolores, and his sister, Laurel, made deli salads and baked goods while his brother, Chris, an attorney, handled the lease negotiations. Judy, Johnson’s wife-to-be, worked behind the counter and helped with personnel, hiring, training and catering. Even Johnson’s brother-in-law, Rick, chipped in with his carpentry skills. In the following year the neighboring TV store closed and Johnson was able to expand Erik’s Deli to 1800 square feet.
By June, 1976 Erik’s Deli had made enough profits to open a second deli in Capitola. Carrying the name Erik’s DeliCafé, locations in Aptos, Santa Cruz and Los Gatos followed shortly thereafter. Unwilling to sacrifice his standards of quality for growth, in February of 1977 Johnson rented and later purchased a warehouse in the Harvey West Park area of Santa Cruz. Johnson designed the location to house a commercial kitchen and later the corporate offices. To this day, all of Erik’s fresh soups, salads, dinner entrees and baked goods are still prepared from Erik’s original family recipes, enabling the DeliCafés to serve products that are made from scratch and contain no preservatives. As the demand for more DeliCafés grew, the Cupertino DeliCafé became the first franchise in April, 1986. Today, Erik’s boasts 27 DeliCafés!. Of the current 27 locations, two are corporately owned and 25 are franchised. Johnson attributes the success of Erik’s DeliCafé to four values that are maintained at all levels of the company: Consistency, Quality, Service and Integrity.
The commitment to these values has directly resulted in producing award-winning soups and sandwiches. In 1999, the Metro Santa Cruz presented Erik’s DeliCafé with their “Gold Award” for Best Soup and “Silver Award” for Best DeliCafé and Best Sandwich. Other honors bestowed on Erik’s DeliCafé have included the Entertainment’s Member’ choice Award for Favorite Deli in 1997, Metro Santa Clara’s opens! Readers’ Choice Award for Best Deli in 1991, the Good Times’ Best wholesale nba jerseys Deli Sandwich award in 1989, 1990 and 1991, as well cheap nba jerseys as numerous Recent others. Likewise, Erik’s DeliCafé was named Restaurant of the Year by the California Restaurant Association, Santa Cruz Area Chapter in 1989 and Business of the Year by the Aptos Chamber of Commerce in 1990.
