Parakeet Café Carlsbad Now Open

Parakeet Café Carlsbad is now open at The Forum, marking a highly-anticipated opening that has finally arrived for North County residents.

Founded by Carol and Jonathan Goldwasser in 2017, Parakeet Café’s first location opened in the La Jolla Village. The idea was birthed from a challenging time for the Goldwassers when they learned how important food can be as medicine. The brand focuses on the parakeet through the colors and art, making every location’s decor vibrant, Insta-worthy and offering feel-good vibes.


Parakeet Café serves up health-conscious food, coffee, tea and freshly baked goods prepared with the highest quality, organic and locally sourced ingredients. The menu consists of unique coffee creations, nutrient-packed smoothies, a wonderful selection of vegan and gluten-free pastries, breakfast egg dishes and salads, sandwiches, bowls, soups and burgers. While catering to the health-conscious, the Parakeet Café Carlsbad menu does not sacrifice taste.

Charcoal Belgian Waffle

Standout breakfast items at Parakeet Café Carlsbad include the vegan and gluten-free activated charcoal Belgian waffle with date-coconut cream, strawberries, banana, house-made granola and house-made Nutella. The gluten-free chilaquiles feature green salsa, baked tortillas, sunny-side-up eggs, green ricotta, black beans and salt-cured cactus. A selection of toasts includes avocado, harvest, mushroom, salmon, truffle scramble and almond butter varieties.

Best Burger Ever

Lunch and dinner highlights are the Green Goddess Salad (a fan-favorite); the Parakeet Bowl with brown rice, roasted mushrooms, sesame collard greens, pickled cucumbers and almond butter-miso mayo; and the “Best Burger Ever” made with grass-fed Australian beef, aioli, organic cheddar, caramelized onions, house-made pickle and brioche bun paired with roasted potatoes or house salad.

Whether you need a quick caffeine fix or craving a leisurely brunch with friends, Parakeet Café Carlsbad invites North County residents to soar in and celebrate the opening of their newest location at The Forum.

Parakeet Cafe Carlsbad is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. To see the complete menu, visit
