Just off a fairly foot-beaten stretch of Sunset Boulevard is a small shop named for the medieval, open-faced predecessor of the sandwich. A cozy dining room with a hipster vibe, Trencher is a purveyor of specialty sandwich inventions with novel ingredients, such as hot pureed parsnip served over brisket, or Portobello mushrooms with red peppers, onions and basil. Each sandwich is expertly composed and served alongside homemade potato chips or one of the kitchen’s scrumptious hot sides, including smashed potatoes, mac and cheese or buffalo cauliflower. Try the namesake sandwich, The Trencher, a mix of veggies, avocado, smoked salmon and hardboiled egg.

Delicious! They were at the Mac & Cheese Smackdown where I got to try their Mac & Cheese. It was damn good.
This place is great—not overly-concerned with being the hottest spot on the block, just quietly making really delicious sandwiches (and fries, and mac & cheese, etc.). Their brisket is AMAZING, but you really can't go wrong here. The service is friendly and you're a short walk from Echo Park Lake (and right across the street from that awesome gas station featured in "Love," if you're into that sort of thing).
Such a cute little spot for a charming lunch or breakfast. The food offerings are creative takes on classic comfort foods, from banh mi sandwiches to chipotle mac and cheese, and the staff are the sweetest.
