In 1997, Tony Brooks and his sister, Julie, opened The Coast Café with the help of their father, Major E. Brooks. The Coast Café is located in the Cambridge neighborhood where Tony grew up (The Coast) and where his father was a dedicated community volunteer. In 2004, Tony maintained ownership and dedicated The Coast Café to the memory of his father to share family recipes and to give back to his community. Today, Tony and his family continue to serve healthy, savory soul food made with 100% pure love!
