Let’s meet at the Parakeet

At Parakeet Café you will find yourselves amongst friends and neighbors, amongst foodies and yogis, young and old. You will be a part of a celebration of one of life’s simplest pleasures and one of the most joyful acts we as humans can do:


Our Story 

Parakeet Cafe sprouted from one of the greatest challenges in our lives. It emerged from a deep-rooted desire to heal and grow, both as individuals and as a community. Our journey began with our daughter Michelle, who was born with a rare disease that required chemotherapy when she was just four months old. Faced with this immense challenge, we couldn't simply sit still and wait for her healing; we had to take action. Our quest for solutions led us to a remarkable discovery: food as medicine. Food became the cornerstone of Michelle's healing journey, mending her on a small scale and infusing us with resilience. It offered us a semblance of control amidst the uncertainty, and with the unwavering support of our close-knit circle of friends and family, we found the strength to persevere. Through years of firsthand experience, we unearthed the transformative power of food, both for healing and personal growth. Our journey eventually culminated in a profound purpose: sharing the lessons we'd learned with others. It was our way of giving back to the community that had supported us on our path. Parakeet Cafe became the vessel for this purpose. It's a place where people can explore the incredible potential of food, savor REAL dishes crafted from high-quality, locally sourced, organic ingredients, embrace the vibrant colors of the rainbow on their plates, and share these experiences with loved ones with Love,

We take pride in sourcing the highest quality ingredients we can get from local organic farms, not only because they taste better and deliver maximum nutrition, but because is better for the planet.

Wet your beak

Good food needs a good companion. Our coffee program consists of drinks that will compliment our menu, and our philosophy, ethically sourced beans, house-made syrups, wellness lattes made with adaptogenic herbs and mushrooms, and alternative milks.
