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.

Blu Jam also has locations in Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, and Tokyo, Japan.

Blu Jam's new downtown shop will be joining Guisados, Garcons de Cafe, Gelateria Uli, and the forthcoming (if long delayed) Clayton's Public House.

Beyond serving their signature crunchy french toast, the new location will also act as a bakery for the growing Blu Jam empire.

"We make everything in-house," Majer added. "Ketchups, jams, everything. The only thing I don't do is bread. So, it'll take [a few months] but we'll be making our own bread here. It'll smell amazing."

No doubt that the growing residential base of downtown will welcome Blu Jam, as will all those who make the trek from East L.A. and the San Gabriel Valley.

Blu Jam Cafe Downtown will officially open on June 7. Hours will run weekdays 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and weekends until 4 p.m. The Spring Arcade Building is located at 541 South Spring Street, Los Angeles. (213) 266-8909
