Beloved Café Tropical Owner Donato Lopez Passes Away

The community figure was known for his smile and hospitality.

Very sad news. Donato Lopez, the chef and owner of Silver Lake’s Café Tropical has passed, according to The Eastsider. Regulars to the restaurant known for its guava cheese pie, massive cookies, and Cuban sandwiches could always count on a warm smile by Lopez from behind the counter.

Lopez was taken to the hospital in early December for an infection, and later passed at the age of 53. Café Tropical opened in 1975 on the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Parkman Avenue, with Lopez taking over four years ago.

A memorial to Donato Lopez is currently on display within the café, which will be managed by Lopez’s brother.
