Save Max Bloom’s Café Noir

Fullerton has always had a place for everyone; Max Bloom’s Café Noir is a perfect example of such a place. Max Bloom’s is hitting its ninth year in Fullerton and it never fails to leave you feeling like you just came home. Being here all these years, Bloom’s never gave into the big chains by pushing high prices and conformity. Max Bloom’s is one of the few places where artists, poets, and musicians have a space to gather and dream big. Here you can jam out, read a book, scream at the top of your lungs, and just be you.

This hidden gem has stayed alive all this while thanks to owner, Kevin Carter, working a second full time job. Every penny from the tip jar goes straight back into making Bloom’s the affordable friendly place it is. 2017 has been a rough year for Bloom’s. Due to a robbery that set us back $2,500, Max Bloom’s risked not being able to renew its lease. Thanks to the community coming together and the hashtag #SaveMaxBlooms , we were able to secure Bloom’s place in Fullerton for another year. But 2017 isn’t over yet and we are still struggling to get by.

Max Bloom’s is currently living month to month and barley breaking even. To add insult to injury, our ice machine broke about a month ago; forcing us to buy bags of ice daily to keep the business going. We have the option of fixing the ice machine, setting us back $700. Or, we can invest in a newer used model for $1.300. Living check to check, we don’t have the option to fix this major problem immediately. We are calling on the community again and our great and loyal customers to help us out in our time of need to #KeepBloomsCool! We are asking for donations of any amount online and in person. If you can’t donate online, come in and throw a dime in the tip jar.

Rewards are available to be picked up within the week of donation(s).
