Lowell Cafe is now open! The much-anticipated cafe is located in West Hollywood on La Brea between Santa Monica and Fountain. Cannabis connoisseur who are 21 and over can now eat food and smoke weed at the same time – legally!

According to reports, upon arrival, security will check for an ID then a host will lead you to your table. The cafe is organized bistro-style and the setting is warm and comfortable. And, thanks to a high-end air filtration system, there’s no obvious haze even with a roomful of people smoking.

No alcohol is sold at Lowell Cafe by California cannabis laws. Nonetheless, the weed menu is filled with bud, concentrates, edibles, vapes, and infused beverages. Also available are pre-rolls with alluring names like Black Gelato and Kushberry Cheesecake. Each segment on the menu covers an estimate of onset and duration times so you can decide on what you choose to order. “Flower hosts” are in attendance to help you maneuver the wide cannabis menu. Customers can bring their personal cannabis, but they will pay a $20 “tokeage” fee.

Executive Chef Andrea Drummer heads the kitchen and also a partner in the restaurant. Her dishes are created as shareable plates to pair with the exciting cannabis list.
