Coffee Shop
$$
“Perhaps the place where craft coffee really took off in Los Angeles back in 2007, this Silver Lake coffee bar still has excellent coffee brewed by the cup or via espresso. And that patio is the perfect snapshot of Eastside culture. ”

Noodle House

“If you can outwait the line (or go on an off-time) it's absolutely delicious Ramen. ”

Pizza Place
$$
“This is a chicago style deep dish pizza place. One of my favorite places to take friends if they've come to LA to travel. Beware it takes about 45 minutes for the pizza to bake because of the large portion of cheese and crust! The whole pizza is pretty huge. It's a good place for a group to hangout and chat. The parking is bit of a hassle, so if you can uber that would be more convenient. There are many cute shops nearby.”

“Echo Park is a scruffy Eastside neighborhood with vibrant street murals and a lively nightlife scene. Indie music venues, trendy bars and taco trucks can be found along Sunset Boulevard, along with coffee shops, vegan eats and quirky boutiques. Echo Park Lake offers paddle boating among lotus flowers. Nearby is Dodger Stadium and hiking at Elysian Park. Angelino Heights is a picturesque nook with Victorian homes.”

Taiwanese Restaurant

“This is just a fantastic Taiwanese restaurant. They don't take reservations so you might have to stand in line for a bit but it is 100% worth it. It also happens to be very affordable. We recommend the Dan Dan Noodles, the scallion pancakes, the pot stickers and the 5 spice bamboo shoot salad.”
