Like so many of Echo Park’s worthiest eateries, Brite Spot has a knowing sort of charm. Their retro décor, complete with rosewood tufted booths and shiny display cases, matches the menu, which can best be described as classic diner with a SoCal twist. Brite Spot's vegan menu, which offers PETA-approved nachos ($9.75), sweet potato fries ($6.95) and more, does not disappoint. Omnivores can guiltlessly tuck into a bowl of Cheezy Mac ($9.25) or double stack of Belgian Waffles ($7)—neither of which anyone with a pulse could deny at 2am. And there’s always Brite Spot’s weekday happy hour, when from 3pm to 6pm, half a dozen of their most popular menu items become $6 each.
