Health-Focused Parakeet Cafe Lands In Coronado

October 30, 2020

A local spot for healthy, organic nourishment with three locations currently open around San Diego, Parakeet Cafe has unveiled its 4th area branch in Coronado.

Parakeet has been a cozy destination for friends and neighbors since launching in La Jolla in 2017. The health-inspired all-day eatery was founded by husband-and-wife Jonathan Goldwasser and Carol Roizen, who were also the owners of the San Diego-based Juice Crafters locations before rebranding them into Parakeet Juicery earlier this month. 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 has installed within the Orange Avenue building that housed Cafe 1134 for 15 years until it closed this past June. The new restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a mezzanine dining area perched above the main dining room. Like other branches, there is a tropical design with neon-lit slogans on the wall. There is also a menu of beer and wine to compliment the eatery's Mexico-inspired healthy dishes like breakfast, soups, salads, toasts, burritos, burgers, and sandwiches.

"We are super excited about our recent opening in Coronado, we opened this Wednesday and it’s been very fun so far," wrote Parakeet Cafe founder Carol Roizen. "We are very grateful to be able to serve the Coronado community. They have been very welcoming and generous since we opened Parakeet Juicery (formerly Juice Crafters) 6 years ago, and we are fortunate to be able to bring more healthy options to the neighborhood, we want to create a gathering place where they can enjoy a chat and a healthy meal. Stop by and explore the life altering powers of organic whole-foods and ethically sourced drinks."

Parakeet Cafe's fourth location is now open at 1134 Orange Avenue in Coronado. For more information, visit
