First restaurant with cannabis on the menu to open in September


At Lowell Café in West Hollywood, Calif., guests will be able to have a toke and a sandwich

The first of several restaurants in California that will legally have cannabis on the menu is scheduled to open in West Hollywood next month.

Lowell Café will be open for lunch, dinner and late-night service offering a full menu of appetizers, small plates, sandwiches, salads and entrees, alongside a “flower menu” with an array of cannabis products that can be smoked in various forms, pre-packaged edibles and concentrates.

Kevin Brady, Lowell’s general manager, said Lowell is expected to be the first of eight restaurant and lounge concepts that will allow onsite smoking, vaping and consumption of edibles that won the first round of business licenses from the incorporated city of West Hollywood under an ordinance passed in 2017. Another eight licenses were awarded to businesses with a foodservice component that will focus on edibles only.
