Manifesto Cafe is making it their mission to bring a community-mindedness to Hermon. Eater LA notes that the recently-opened coffee shop is stocking healthy eats and fair trade coffee and tea to typically underserved neighborhoods. Manifesto was actually originally conceived as a job training center and cafe on Skid Row but the Hermon location is instead the cafe’s first entrance into the market. Owner Christina Bailey notes that the job training program will begin in July.
