Black Business Month – KafeLA

Kafela (pronounced Café-El-A) is a family-owned-and-operated business that brings the California sunshine to Cleveland. Owner Kayla Dial opened the restaurant in 2020 during the pandemic and has since grown the business and its audience exponentially.

Located on St. Clair Avenue, the restaurant's cozy atmosphere is filled with plants, hand painted decor, and amazing music, which gives patrons a reason to return time and time again. Kafela’s staff is incredibly friendly and makes sure that your experience is fantastic and unlike any other. Everyone will find something they love here, whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner, all of which are available all day, 7 days a week!

Kafela’s menu is extensive, featuring many of your favorite pleasures such as coffee, smoothies, ice cream, and delectable savory dishes. It is also a must-try for anyone looking for healthy options, as many menu items can be switched out for vegan and vegetarian substitutes.

We had a fantastic time during our visit. Of Kafela's several beverage options, we tried the amazing L.A. Island and Sunday Morning smoothies, which were filled with fresh fruit including pineapples, strawberries, mangos, and more. The L.A. Island smoothie paired perfectly with the Boulevard Buffalo Wrap, a particular favorite that was finished in a few bites. Each menu item was bursting with yummy, fresh flavor that kept you coming back for more.

You won't regret stopping into Kafela. When you go, tell their wonderful staff how you liked your visit, and don't forget to tell them Harvest sent you!
