Not being on the sales side of things I seldom have the opportunity to try and experience all the amazing things our clients have to offer. My family and I have been excited to try Gro Cafe since it opened. The concept of this cafe is simple but so inspiring. From being the first cafe to compost in the park to fresh, healthy, and organic foods I knew this was right up our alley. I must say I was blown away.  Maria, the owner of Gro Cafe, has put her heart and soul into creating every aspect of this amazing little place.

My favorite photo from the whole day.

I love the support from our youth.

The freshest, yummiest fruit I have ever had at a cafe. Cut fresh daily. For those of you with children that watch the wigglies you may recognize the saying on the photo to the right. Fruit salad…yummy yummy!!

A case full of goodies…which includes vegan muffins.

Supporting Cafe Virtuoso on the menu.

The first compost to hit Balboa Park. A huge step in the right direction for the park.

Original hand made cups from a local artist.

The very friendly and funny staff of Gro Cafe.

Gro Cafe shares a beautiful building in Balboa Park with the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego Model Railroad Museum and The San Diego History Center. Look for the green “A” frame sign with arrows pointing you in the right direction. If you need further assistance check out locations page for directions.
