Hidden Gems: Meet David Warr of The Giving Tree Cafe

Today we’d like to introduce you to David Warr.

Hi David, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers.
It started with this “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

As a lifelong healthy eater, it had become apparent that more and more of the restaurants were catering to fast, unhealthy, and microwaved type food. Our restaurant on the other hand prepares every ingredient that we serve from scratch. In other words, if you order a veggie burger, we bake the bread fresh every morning, and we make our own patty, cheese, mustard, and ketchup. This gives the consumer the cleanest, freshest, and healthiest dining experience available. People have called us “The healthiest restaurant in America” we believe this is what makes us a hidden gem in Phoenix.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
In business, there’s no such thing as a smooth road. Obstacles and challenges present themselves on a daily basis but our mission is so strong and the need for what we’re doing is so apparent in our society that we will never give up.

We believe that food is medicine and medicine is food. Currently, our society suffers from higher rates of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes than ever before. Most of these can be mitigated, reversed, or eliminated through a clean and healthy diet. Most restaurants still use deep fryers, toxic chemicals, and low-quality ingredients void of any real nutrition.

Our mission is to stand out as a truly vibrant and healthy alternative so that if you do desire to change to a healthy and sustainable diet, now you’ve got an option that doesn’t compromise on taste and flavor.

Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
We are The Giving Tree Cafe. Everything we serve is 100% Organic, Gluten Free, Soy Free, and Vegan. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only Restaurant in America that can say that. We recently won Ranking Arizona’s Best Vegan Restaurant in Arizona Award.

What makes us proud is that we can deliver such high-quality vibrant food and in addition make it taste outstanding.

People don’t care how healthy something is if they don’t like how it tastes. When is the last time you were in a restaurant where the flavor of each bite bursts in your mouth?

So, before we go, how can our readers or others connect or collaborate with you? How can they support you?
We are a space of love that encourages local artists to display their work in our restaurant and even perform live on the weekends.

We host many events throughout the week which include, Open Mic Night every Tuesday, Sound Healing Sundays, Salsa Dancing Classes on Wednesday, Yoga Sunday Mornings, various music performances on the weekends and informative talks. You can support us by considering us to cater your next event or just come by and grab a bite to eat!
