Hilltop Coffee Kitchen, an upscale café for the local community, recently celebrated their grand opening at the corner of LaBrea and Regent Street in Downtown Inglewood.
The well-appointed restaurant offers locally roasted gourmet coffee, teas, fresh juices with all-day breakfast and lunch, along with a healthy serving of good vibes with courteous, cheerful and professional staff members.
Inglewood native Yonnie Hagos, and his partner Ajay Relan have an established and successful café in the City of Los Angeles and they wanted to be a part of the exciting economic development that is taking place in the City of Inglewood. They decided to open their second Café in the heart of Downtown Inglewood, at the premiere location across the street from the recently announced mixed-use development project.
The owners are committed to a minimum 50 percent hiring rate for Inglewood residents and paying their employees above the minimum wage. The current complement is 20 staff members.
The owners derived the name of their café – Hilltop Coffee Kitchen, recognizing that for centuries, the mountaintop has been a touchstone for dreamers and doers.
“Each and every day we wake up to pursue our own goals. We encounter and overcome any obstacles that may stand in our way. In short, we’re all here – climbing our very own hilltops. Before you begin your daily journey, we invite you to come join us and grab some coffee for the climb.”
Hilltop Coffee Kitchen offers a complete breakfast and lunch menu with a wide range of Ethiopian coffees and teas. They are awaiting their alcohol permit will be offering beer and wine.
In addition to the downstairs ordering and eating area, the café features an open mezzanine above that is an ideal space for more quiet conversations, laptop usage, newspaper and magazine reading, etc. Of course, wi-fi connectivity is available.
“We are proud to be among the newest members of the Inglewood family and we invite the entire community to stop by,” Hagos said.
