The new norm is a phrase that's been used ad nauseam lately, but has been pretty unavoidable. Yet, the concept of a new norm was something that fit nicely when America's first ever cannabis cafe opened in West Hollywood, California last year. It was regarded then as a hope for a new norm where cannabis can be consumed in a restaurant setting.
Debuting back in the fall of 2019, what's now known as OG Cannabis Cafe has had to recalibrate its operations even since the pandemic and shelter in place orders have turned the restaurant world upside down. While marijuana is deemed essential, the cafe had to close since it was deemed a restaurant and not a dispensary. But after working with the city of West Hollywood to find a safe way to continue operating, the OG Cannabis Cafe will now be re-opening as the world's first cannabis and food drive-thru.
Launched today with daily hours of 12:00pm to 8:00pm, the OG Cannabis Cafe will be serving up menu items like Hot Chicken Tenders, Vegan Nachos, and Sugar Cereal Bread Pudding. As for the cannabis portion, they will be offering flower, concentrates, pre-rolls, vaporizers, edibles and accessories.
