One of Hollywood’s most beloved hangouts is set to make a comeback thanks to one of the city’s best bakeries.
Clark Street Bread announced in an Instagram post that it’ll be taking over the shuttered 101 Coffee Shop space later this fall. Dubbed Clark Street Diner, it’s set to bring American breakfast staples like pancakes and hash browns to the Franklin Avenue spot alongside an expanded pastry menu stocked with pecan sticky buns and homemade pies.
Expect just breakfast and lunch to start, with dinner service to follow and—eventually—late-night operations, too. It’ll maintain the family-friendly vibes of the 101 Coffee Shop and, according to an interview in Eater L.A. with owner Zack Hall, many of the architectural elements will remain in tact, too.
After a two-decade run, the 101 Coffee Shop announced its permanent closure in January 2021—and sparked social media eulogies from regulars, one-time visitors and A-listers alike. As for Clark Street, this will mark the fifth location for what started as a bakery in Hall’s apartment before launching a Grand Central Market stall (and its second mid-century diner after turning the former Winsome into a coffee shop).
