Lutunji Abram, Business Owner

Lutunji is gearing up to open Lutunji’s Palate Bakery & Cafe in the new Gatsby building at 1400 Park.  Since 2018, she has been selling scrumptious treats, like her famous Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, Harriet’s Escape Peach Cobbler, and Coconut Macaroons. Many of her desserts are vegan and gluten-free.  Lutunji’s Palate has already outgrown two commercial kitchens.

Lutunji will join us to introduce herself, introduce her business, and share how the community can support her plans.
