Witches and Wizards, rejoice!
Chocolate lovers, tea enthusiasts and coffee aficionados gather around because a sliver of your beloved Hogwarts has become a reality in a corner of Downtown Los Angeles. Minutes away from Staples Center, nestled on Hope St, lives Nimbus Coffee. The experience is as wondrously and aesthetically pleasing as you might imagine.
Menus are printed on paper made to look like scripts from films. Modern wallpaper helps create the hip setting and of course, there is the “Wall of Wands.” It reads, “Levizzle,” in hot pink and in cursive. It is the absolutely perfect spot to get that Instagram shot and make all your witch friends turn green with envy.
Nimbus Coffee thanks it’s customers for visiting by offering delectable treats, mugs and Harry Potter Universe-themed chocolates. During my visit, I sampled the Watermelon Weasly which consists of fresh watermelon, mint syrup, rosemary syrup, fresh cucumber and a mint middle. Perfect for this LA Fall.. Some other items to try ar Giggle waters, Blueberry Polyjuice, Strawberry Deritas, and the Nimbus shakes. Their menu items also include pastries, which are themed as well.
It’s your short stop to the wizarding world, in a small corner of Downtown Los Angeles. Located at 1115 S. Hope Street.
