Juan's Secret Cafe was started by Juan Garcia in late 2004. On Sunday mornings, guests were invited to Juan's residence where they would be served a substantial brunch for $2-$3. Often, you could also purchase a Bloody Mary for an additional $2.

Origin and location

Juan's Secret Cafe first happened in the apartment at 804 1/2 Wealthy on the corner of Wealthy Street and Eastern Avenue. The cafe also took place at 441 Ethel Street SE.


The menu varied from week to week and nothing was made to order. Each Sunday Juan prepared a menu and that is what was served. Favorites included curry and spinach omelets and fried mashed sweet potatoes with butter and maple syrup.
