Health-Focused Parakeet Cafe Targets Coronado For Fourth Area Location

August 13, 2020

A local spot for healthy, organic nourishment with three locations currently open around San Diego, Parakeet Cafe will open a branch in Coronado, taking over the space occupied by Cafe 1134 for the past 15 years.

Parakeet has been a cozy destination for friends and neighbors since launching in La Jolla in 2017. Founded by husband-and-wife Jonathan Goldwasser and Carol Roizen, who are also the owners of the San Diego-based Juice Crafters locations, Parakeet Cafe is centered around a menu of handcrafted coffee drinks and healthy meals made with fresh, locally-sourced, organic ingredients. Parakeet Cafe also opened a branch within the ambitious One Paseo mixed-use development and has an outpost in the heart of San Diego's Little Italy.

Parakeet Cafe will soon begin installing within the Orange Avenue building that housed Cafe 1134 for nearly two decades until it closed this past June. The restaurant will offer indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a mezzanine dining area perched above the main dining room. Like other branches, expect a tropical design with neon-lit slogans on the wall. There will also be a menu of beer and wine to compliment the eatery's Mexico-inspired healthy dishes like breakfast, soup, salad, toast, burritos, burgers, and sandwiches.

Parakeet Cafe's fourth location is expected to open by this fall at 1134 Orange Avenue in Coronado. For more information, visit
