In 1997, Tony Brooks and his sister Julie opened Coast Café with the help of their father, Major E.
Brooks. 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
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!
