After a packed-to-the-brim soft opening over the weekend, Stories in Echo Park is now open. The new & used bookstore with a cafe took over the old Sea Level Records space on Sunset Blvd. next to 826's Echo Park Time Travel Mart and near The Echo, where Stories co-owner Liz Garo books music acts for shows.

There's free wifi, locally themed books, Raven's Brew coffee and Breadbar baked goods (sandwiches, soups and other items will soon be added, says Pat at Eating LA). There's a fairly large back alley patio abut plenty of parking in the city lot.
