Bloom Café

Somehow the blond wood, cement floors, and Technicolor chairs don’t seem out of place on this stretch of Pico with its hair salons and body shops. Breakfast—chorizo omelettes, chocolate-chip-and-coconut pancakes, giant smoothies—is served until 2:45, burgers and sandwiches are available all day, and the pizza oven fires up in the evening. It’s a cosmopolitan little spot where you can show up in your slippers and watch the neighborhood evolve.
