Clean, bright and airy, Eightfold is a refreshing addition to Echo Park's growing coffee scene. There's nothing but smiles and pleasantries behind the counter here, where you'll find pastries from Rockenwagner, a rotating selection of bento boxes, and coffee and tea. The coffee shop has a Japanese influence to its selection, so try their killer matcha latte while perusing Eightfold's well-curated book selection. Short marble-topped tables line one wall, while a communal table is perfect for collaboration or working on your laptop (yup, there's free WiFi here, too).
Looking for places to get your fix in Echo Park? There are plenty, from Sunset Boulevard holes-in-the-wall to indoor/outdoor spaces overlooking the hills or the Downtown skyline. Grab a cup before the Dodgers game or take one to-go for a stroll around Echo Park Lake—your refreshment options are endless here.
