Blu Jam Cafe Melrose location original interior


EST. 2006

Cozy eatery with set wooden tables, an exposed brick wall, and shelves with assorted decor items.


It started out as an idea between friends— a casual cafe in Hollywood that would utilize seasonal local ingredients to create gourmet breakfast and lunch dishes at an affordable price. Friends and partners Kamil Majer and David Fris shared that dream, which ultimately became a reality in 2006 when the first Blu Jam Cafe opened its doors on Melrose Avenue.

Visitors can indulge in our signature Crunchy French Toast or explore lighter fare with the Power House – and everything in between. Our lively and inviting ambiance pairs perfectly with an unwavering approach to quality, service and culinary innovations. 

Table #2 will always have a special place in our hearts.

Chef Kamil Majer


Kamil Majer wears many hats, including Founder and Executive Chef of Blu Jam Cafe. His path to putting breakfast plates on the  tables of Los Angeles began many years ago after he emigrated from former Czechoslovakia. 

He developed his strong passion for the culinary arts at a young age with an unwavering flair for the beauty in simplicity – and quality over quantity. Every item on his menu has a story – from childhood memories to global travel with loved ones.

Chef Kamil is intimately involved in day-to-day operations at all Blu Jam Cafe locations and can often be seen shaking hands and socializing with guests. If you ever encounter him at your table – wherever you are – prepare to sit back and enjoy.

Fresh ingredients including produce are delivered all week long at each of our locations. We strive to serve the best, so we source the best. We take pride in partnering with smaller companies, farms and purveyors because we believe in attention to detail, quality and service. This is the Blu Jam way. 

Some of our friends include Babe Farms, Grimmway Farms, Lili Farms, Milo’s Poultry Farms, Creekstone Farms, Wild Isles, Butternut Mountain, Bar-M, Chasin Foods, Caffe LA, Kaena Wines, and the list continues to grow as we go.

With breakfast comes coffee, and we take coffee very seriously. Our coffee program receives the same attention to detail as our food.

For our French press format, we handpicked a single-origin coffee bean from Guatemala’s best high elevation coffee producing region “San Lucas Toliman.” For our house espresso blend, we proudly serve the Italian favorite Danesi. 

Our baristas make every coffee drink with love – and trust us – you’ll want to sip and stay a while…
