Dialog Cafe hosted the first ever “Dialog with a Deputy” event on Thursday, July 21, 2022, where they invited West Hollywood sheriff deputies, neighbors, local business owners and West Hollywood elected officials to gather at 8766 Holloway Drive for coffee and conversation with WeHo law enforcement.

“We’ve always believed in encouraging meaningful conversations with our staff and customers,” posted Dialog Cafe on their social media platforms prior to the event. They stated that conversation is why they opened their doors to host the first-ever “Dialog with a Deputy.”

The West Hollywood Sheriff stated that there was no agenda at the event. The two-hour meet-and-greet was simply an opportunity for community members to ask questions, voice concerns, learn about volunteer opportunities and community events, and get to know the deputies and command staff at the West Hollywood Station.

“It was great to see our West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station out in the community yesterday morning, along with several board members and commissioners, Mayor Meister, and former Councilmember Heilman,” said West Hollywood Public Safety commissioner and West Hollywood Council candidate, Robert Oliver. “Many members of the community stopped by to chat with deputies during the 2-hour event. I think this is exactly the kind of community engagement we need right now, and I encourage members of our community and city leadership to come out to the next one.”

Dialog Cafe is a family owned cafe with a close-knit crew serving the West Hollywood community. “We partner with the best to serve the best,” reads the intro on their website. “We serve third wave coffee which ultimately means we care about quality and focus on micro batch roasting. This allows us to showcase a more complex flavor profile from our coffee program. Not only do we locally source our coffee beans, we also partner with family operated farms that have been passed down generation after generation. If it’s not obvious by now, we’re real big on the inclusive family vibes. We like to support small local family owned businesses and showcase their quality produce in our own handcrafted creations.”

Dialog Cafe is located on the corner of Holloway Drive and Palm Avenue, across from Tower Records. To learn more, visit: https://dialogcafe.la

Interesting to see Tod Hallman and Robert Oliver making nice with Sheriff personnel after they both voted to defund deputy positions. Both these guys voted to make WeHo less safe, but here they are ready for their photo opportunity.

Both Hallman & Oliver publicly stated that they basically changed their minds… I think it was at the beginning of the City Council meeting where the defund vote came in, they both made public comments. It seems like both of them regret their votes.
