Mother’s Café opened in Austin in June, 1980. Cameron Alexander started there on Day 1 as a cook. Anne Daniels began in November 1980 as a server and shift manager. John Silberberg was hired in June 1981 as a server. In 1985, they bought the restaurant from the founder, and the team was formed. Together, we guided Mother's through what became a 40-year run as a uniquely “Austin” restaurant.
Over the years, Mother’s Café became a part of the life of so many people. We’d see a young couple as regular diners, later provide cakes for their wedding, and eventually see them in with their entire family, including the grandchildren. That feeling of family extended into our staff as well, as numerous former “Motherites” stayed in touch, telling us years later of fond memories of their “best job ever”.
In March 2020 everything changed for us and for everybody the world over. The big “40 years!” publicity we had planned became meaningless. As the pandemic continued well into Summer, it gradually became clear that Mother’s Café would close. Mother's Cafe closed it's doors on October 24th 2021
The Mother’s Café love is still alive. It’s the same love that drove us, decade after decade, to create happy and healthy dining experiences day after day. And that love still drives us to bring some of Mother’s Café to people. We started with the product we already had, the cashew tamari dressing. Our goal is to package some of the favorite entrees from Mother’s Café: starting with our 3 salad dressings , Cashew Tamari, Vegan Ranch and Lemon Basil Vinegarette.
