When his father, the sole breadwinner of the family, was diagnosed with brain cancer, Seton Hall University Economics student Christian Santa Cruz knew he had to do something to help his family. During his brief tenure at Reebok, he and his parents decided to open a business with what money they had left. This idea gradually became the groundwork for Silver Pearl Cafe. Drawing on his studies and retail experience, alone with the help of friends and family, the Christian finally opened the cafe for business in Late October 2017 with a line of pastries and coffee. After much research and testing, the menu was expanded to include a line of sandwiches and salads, and will continue improving over time. Now open for eating in and take-out, Silver Pearl Cafe will soon be offering comprehensive delivery and catering options, as well as occasional rental of an event space otherwise used as additional seating near the back of the cafe.
