San Marino Cafe's Story
San Marino Cafe and Marketplace has been serving communities since 2017. Owner, Linda Grace opened the doors of the cafe in the Summer of 2017, with a passion to feed and serve people fresh and delicious food. Not knowing a global pandemic was looming in the horizon, the cafe began to develop itself into a community hub where people met for a quick breakfast or casual lunch. In March of 2019 everything changed forever. This small but mighty cafe reached out local communities who needed food and supplies, building a meaningful foundation in the San Gabriel Valley.
From the start Linda wanted to offer the community simple and delicious food made with love. A place with artisanal sandwiches, salads and soups, adorable boxed lunches and grazing platters for catering needs, special wines from California to Armenia, the best in organic coffee and teas, and warm vibes.
San Marino Café and Marketplace has hosted after-hour events for women building businesses, local charities and clubs, start-up vision collaborations, business meetings and community gatherings. Funds have been raised for women on the cancer journey, Children's Hospital, frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the homeless and refugees all over the world. Proceeds from menu items are donated to a new charity every month in our quest to give back, spread love and make the world better from our tiny corner.
