UPPER WEST SIDE — A new vegan fast-food spot is coming to Amsterdam Avenue at the end of June, the owner said.

Blossom Du Jour, part of a mini-chain of vegan restaurants and cafes owned by Pamela Blackwell, will soon open at 449 Amsterdam Ave., between West 81st and 82nd streets. 

The space formerly housed the children's toy and clothing store Area Kids. The lease on the 400-square-foot space was brokered by Rafe Evans of Walker Malloy and Company.

The 15-seat spot will serve vegan food and drinks to go, and will include a large vegan and gluten-free baked goods selection, Blackwell said.

The lunch spot will serve vegan sandwiches, wraps, salads, shakes, pressed juices and vegetable sides in addition to its array of sweets. Its newest location sits less than a block from the juice store Organic Avenue and the vegan restaurant Peacefood Cafe.
