Located on Alvarado Street just north of Sunset Boulevard in Echo Park, this cozy cafe has great food and java, along with a jazzy, beatnik vibe. The daily menu ranges from breakfast specials and pastries to traditional diner fare, sandwiches and salads. For a long time, the place was called the Downbeat Cafe, but in 2012 the name was changed to Echo Lake Coffee Company after new owners took over. All ages. No cover.
