Meet Josh and Pamela the owners of Meant to Be Cafe: https://www.youtube.com/embed/QVy1gklWDfk
There are many places around Long Beach that serve breakfast, but there is nowhere in Long Beach, possibly all of California, that serves breakfast like Meant to Be Cafe. Started by Josh and Pamela Batovsky, Meant to Be Cafe has been serving up generously portioned homestyle meals for a little over a year.
The secret to making their food so delicious? Well not only do they use all fresh ingredients, the only frozen item they have is also tater tots, but their food has that extra special ingredient: love.
It seems to go into every single aspect of what they do, from serving up food that looks like its right out of grandma’s kitchen to the way each member of the staff treats their guests.
Josh says that their approach to design is one of the things that makes Meant to Be so inviting and enjoyable to be in. Bright airy colors and lots of light are a departure from the cafes one might see around the city. Rather than adopt a more masculine approach with lots of dark colors and solid wood, Meant to Be embraces more feminine design cues to help guests relax.
It is clear that Meant to Be is a work of love for Josh and Pamela, and as such their kindness and passion spills over from the cafe into the community. Meant to Be, and their attached boutique GloGetter is partnered with various companies that give back to the community.
From their coffee that supports fair trade practices in Africa to the candles on each table that help provide meals for children in need; Josh and Pamela have created a place that does more than serve delicious food. Anyone interested in taking steps to support these causes should stop in and see first-hand how easy it can be to make a difference.
Make sure to stop be Meant to Be Cafe during Long Beach Restaurant Week, August 3rd through the 11th and enjoy some delicious breakfast food or a cup of coffee!
