Hot and Cool Café

Hot + Cool Cafe, a Los Angeles County-certified social enterprise, is a local Black-owned and family-operated coffee shop in the heart of Leimert Park Village that opened in 2018. The Cafe is committed to making sure all their neighbors have access to healthy food, regardless of circumstance. Owners Tony Jolly and Tina Amin intentionally chose Leimert Park as the location for their vegan café in what has historically been a food desert for convenient, healthy food choices in South Central.


Post and Beam

With an open kitchen, a spacious, warm-hued main dining room, and a verdant garden patio, Post & Beam is designed to make you feel at home. We frequently feature live music on the patio and the in-house curated soundtrack is always pitch-perfect. We’re available for private events and for help planning your next spectacular occasion, contact our events department.

We pride ourselves on turning real ingredients into distinct and comforting ‘delectables. Everything is made with love, and we never cut corners.


Runway Boutique

Runway Boutique LA started fourteen years ago with the dreams and aspirations of Fatima Dodson. After growing up in fashion, Fatima wanted to create a space of her own to bring women together through a thick, connecting thread: fashion. RBLA is a blend of afrocentric, care-free, Brooklyn bohemian fashion-forward goodness. Not only is it a reflection of Fatima’s own personal style, but an amalgamation of the influences she was touched by growing up.  Runway Boutique’s carefully-crafted curation of style is dedicated to creating a safe environment for women to express themselves through their own sense of style. When you walk into Fatima’s shop, you’re greeted with a joyfully overwhelming sense of care, a meticulous eye for detail, and a playful spirit when it comes to wardrobe.


South LA Cafe

We started the South LA Cafe, because after decades of living in a food desert, we wanted fresh, affordable, and healthy food options for ourselves and our neighbors. Instead of waiting for it to arrive, we decided to take a leap of faith and provide it ourselves. We believed if we build it, they would come, and we are so grateful that you did! South LA Cafe is a community space to take pride in the history, legacy, and future of the South Central Community.


Alta Adams

Located in Los Angeles’ historic West Adams neighborhood, Alta Adams’ culinary vision is led by chefs Keith Corbin and Daniel Patterson. Alta Adams introduces a distinct interpretation of soul food that draws the connection between traditional West African food and California cuisine. The menu they created together fuses the Southern flavors and dishes Corbin grew up eating and preparing alongside his grandmother with a vibrant aesthetic and produce-driven approach.
