Detroit Vesey’s, a new, “queer-centered" cycling café and culture hub in the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles, is a welcoming gathering place to enjoy a fresh spin on tasty diner classics.
DV's is a hub for the cycling (and LGBTQ+) community, hosting numerous rides that regularly meet, leave, and return to the cafe each week. Join the weekly Wednesday morning ride at 7 a.m., when cyclists do a short ride in the neighborhood (DTLA and adjacent). There are also other rides on the Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sunday evenings in which one or two cycling teams ride out of the shop together. Visitors will find ample indoor bike parking, a bike part vending machine, and enough food to get riders fueled up for the rides.
DV diners can expect to be greeted with sweet and savory, fueling breakfast menu offerings, classic comfort dinner food and a wide selection of creative zero-proof mocktails.
Dive into bites like the gluten-free Banana Pancakes, a perfectly sweet selection of banana oat bran pancakes topped with cardamom-toasted almonds and maple syrup -- or the hearty Mini Meatloaf, a dish made with beef, pork and pan barbecue sauce. There are also multiple gluten-free menu items and vegan options.
