Bloom and Plume
23 Essential Black-Owned Restaurants You Should Know in LA
It’s hard to resist the Bloom & Plume ethos of “building a beloved community where everyone belongs and becomes a better version of themselves.” Owned by floral artist Maurice Harris, who runs a high-end floral boutique by the same name, Bloom & Plume is the perfect way to describe how this cafe effortlessly adds luxury to every menu item while simultaneously keeping everything simple and affordable. Under their coyly-named “Toast Ministry,” you’ll find IG-worthy options like their Ricotta & Jam Toast, which is heaped with creamy cheese, zested subtly with lemon, garnished with edible flowers, and topped with seasonal jam sourced from Rick’s Produce for a price tag under $10. Their “Drank Ministry'' will also make a convert out of you, with delectable options like their Chaggacino, with Chaga mushroom, cacao, vanilla, cinnamon, espresso, steamed milk, and sweetened with monk fruit.
