Echo Park's Very Own Blue Bottle Coffee Shop Opens Next Week
Oakland-based Blue Bottle Coffee has been spreading its wings throughout Los Angeles (and all over the world, including Tokyo). Now, Echo Park will be home to one of the coffee roaster's outposts come August 8.
The new spot is located in a red-brick building on 1712 W. Sunset Blvd., just steps away from Masa of Echo Park and Sage Vegan Bistro. According to Blue Bottle, it will be the second spot in Los Angeles to feature their full food menu, espresso, drip and iced coffees. We hope that also means they'll be serving their addictive chicory-based, New Orleans Iced Coffee. At their Venice location, they have cookies, pastries and baked goods as well, so we might have an idea of what's in store for this one.

Last summer, Blue Bottle took over the space that Handsome Coffee Roasters once occupied in the Arts District, then opened another shop in Venice by that fall. Their expansion will continue as they're expected to open another location inside the beautiful Bradbury building in downtown L.A. sometime next year.
