What is à bloc all about?
...Is it a coffee shop, a bakery, a retail store, a bike shop? The answer is YES!
à bloc is everything we love; Amazing locally roasted coffee, house-made foods and baked goods, including glorious Sourdough Boules baked twice daily, plant-based, vegan and gluten-free options for breakfast, lunch and snacks, including the BEST COOKIE IN LA, smiles, beautifully curated coffee and bicycle accessories. We even have a resident Bike Mechanic called Olsen keeping the community rolling.
à bloc is a woman / minority owned-operated family business. We appreciate all the love and support from our neighbours, community and beyond. ❤️✊
...in the time of COVID19.
**Given our new reality during this time of uncertainty, we are now Grab & Go only. We've packaged some of your favorite vegan/GF ingredients/items into containers so you can incorporate our delicious ingredients into your home cooking.**
Be safe and take care of each other!

Kjeld Clark - Founder / Husblànd of Owner - Team member
Originally hailing from Leeds in Yorkshire (UK), Kjeld (pronounced Kel) is a passionate life-long cyclist and ex- mountain bike racer. He moved from his native England to NYC in 1999 and then to L.A. in 2003, and is a long time NELA resident.
Founding à bloc allowed Kjeld to channel his passion for cycling culture, coffee, and food together with his 30 years of entrepreneurial skills into one amazing environment and realise a dream to build a community for people to enjoy all three. He is the founder of the independent cycling apparel brand superdomestik.cc which has its HQ and Flagship Retail Store within à bloc, and (when he has time to shoot) you can find his cycling photography in the annals of Peloton Magazine, Bicycle Mag and other fine magazines.
