Potterheads have a new destination in downtown Los Angeles. Billed as “a place for wizards, witches, and muggles alike,” Nimbus Coffee opened its doors on June 18.https://www.instagram.com/p/ByyA9M_haqY/
The cafe is not an official Harry Potter property, but more of an homage to J.K. Rowling’s iconic series, with whimsical decor and details. There’s a wall of wands–sure to be the Instagram backdrop of choice–and plenty of vintage books and trunks, along with some quirky portraits of real-life celebrities made over as wizards and witches.https://www.instagram.com/p/By2-uvbAs_c/
On the menu you can order a “blueberry polyjuice” or “strawberry veritas”–or go for a non-wizardy “latte,” made with beans from local roaster Tectonic Coffee. Food is currently limited to a pastry case, but additional house-made dishes may come online in the future.
Setting Nimbus apart from some other pop culture cafes is this one intends to be a permanent fixture, not a limited-time pop-up.
Nimbus Coffee, 1115 S. Hope St., downtown.
