17 Years of Roots and a Lifetime of Coral Trees
Seventeen years ago, desire turned into intent, and the seeds for Coral Tree Café were planted. All of which was inspired by one simple goal–opening a casual eatery to offer the neighborhood good food with good intentions. Over the years we have not only served certified organic, fair trade coffees & teas, but also opted to use organic produce and sustainable practices wherever we can, resulting in our being one of the first and only Certified Green Restaurants® in Los Angeles. Now we are taking the next step, and doing our part to phase out the worldwide use of straws.
Recently, Coral Tree Café has replaced our straws with sip lids and has already saved over 7k straws and counting. Additionally, you will find new a mix of eco-friendly, biodegradable and recyclable packaging in your Coral Tree take out & delivery bags. These are just a few ways we are doing what we can to live up to the beautiful coral trees we are named after that line along San Vicente Boulevard, located directly across from our Brentwood location.
According to National Geographic, 8.3 billion plastic straws pollute the world’s beaches.
Let that sink in for a minute. Or maybe not. In addition to ditching plastic, Coral Tree Café is making an effort to help heal the bay one sip at a time. Join us by purchasing our new metal straw kit, and 25% of the proceeds will be donated to Heal the Bay, the strong and trusted advocates of the ocean for the last 34 years!
But of course, there is always a way to go one step further and help us achieve our end goal of zero waste! Bring in your own mug and automatically receive 10% off your beverage. No promo expiration date, just a lifetime commitment to our community and its future.
