Favorite Spots in Echo Park

Button Mash is a classic arcade stolen from the 70s, 80s, and 90s featuring local beer on draft and Pan-Asian comfort food, all conveniently located across the street for some after-hour team pinball tournaments. (photo: Wonho Frank Lee @wonhophoto)

Eightfold can be best described as good coffee and good people. Located a few doors down on Sunset Blvd, Eightfold serves up Portland’s Heart Roasters espresso and some of the best Matcha lattes over a unique selection of design books, magazines and lot of natural light.

Time Travel Mart is, oddly enough, exactly what it sounds like: a convenient store for time travelers of all eras, where the sale of Mad Scientist Goggles, Robot Replacement Arms, and Pastports not only brings to life the fantasy world we dreamt of as kids, but also helps to fund 826 LA, a non-profit writing and tutoring organization dedicated to inspiring students and supporting teachers.

Stories Books & Café is Echo Park’s own independent bookstore that doubles as a café and venue for a diverse calendar of events, from book release parties, to comedy shows, live music, and community meetings. (photo: Stories Books & Café)

The Echo Park Farmers Market is brought to life every Friday from 3pm to 7pm at the intersection of Sunset Blvd and Logan street, where 15 local farmers set up their tables and offer up a wide variety of produce, jams, jellies, honeys, fresh flowers, and more over live music. (photo:
