The moves keep coming for Blu Jam Cafe owner Kamil Majer, who is expanding west next into the massive former Maru space on Wilshire Boulevard. The gigantic, airy room will soon be filled with the sounds of clanging dishware during brunch, as reps for Blu Jam say the opening is happening early next month.
Blu Jam Cafe is perhaps most known for its endless weekend brunch lines, particularly at the company’s flagship location along Melrose . . .
There are those people who have a particular foodstuff they adore — avocados, strawberries, bacon — and there are those who favor a certain dish or entree.
But the eaters who list “breakfast” as the all-encompassing category to which they own their edible allegiance are maybe among the most serious of the whole bite-seeking bunch of us . . .
The uber-popular Melrose Avenue brunch spot Blu Jam Cafe is expanding to downtown L.A., with an outpost slated to open at the Spring Arcade Building in the former BierBeisl spot.
“I see the location as an oasis in downtown,” Kamil Majer, owner and founder of Blu Jam Cafe, told LAist. “It’s a beautiful building, and I love the arcade. There’s some other great things there and we really want to be a part of it” as it grows in the next few years . . .
Downtown’s brunch game is getting elevated thanks to AM heavy hitter Blu Jam Cafe, which is set to open inside the Spring Arcade on Tuesday, June 6. The local chain already boasts half a dozen outlets from Melrose to Woodland Hills to Tarzana to Tokyo, Japan.
Reached by phone, owner Kamil Majer says he’s rather excited about this latest location . . .

Zagat Review for Blu Jam Cafe: “Popular with weekend brunches”, this Mid-City “gem” delivers “creative” American-European “comfort food” (the “crunchy French toast is a must-try”) with a local-ingredient focus throughout the day; the “super-nice” staff navigates the “cozy” digs as well, and though patrons point out the “crowds”, they generally agree it’s “worth the wait.” – Zagat
