Owner Genevieve Ostrander just reopened the Echo Park Avenue bakery in June after some renovations and a menu rehab, but the six-year-old business is now officially up for sale. She tells Eater LA that she put the bakery up for sale due to “unforeseen medical issues,” and that she is “VERY motivated to sell.” Asking price is $150,000 or best offer (plus rent).

Echo Park is on the radar for a new “high-concept coffee bar,” reports Eater LA. Behind the concept: Intelligentsia’s former VP of Strategy Kyle Glanville, and current lead trainer for the Intelligentsia Venice location.

The two told Eater LA that they “have a strong preference for the Eastside, in an underserved locale such as Echo Park.”

While the coffee bar doesn’t have a permanent location yet or even a name, it will focus on using NO disposables – including napkins, cups, coffee filters, etc. We certainly like that! And we really don’t mind the whole coffee trend Intelligentsia represents in the area – as a coffee snob myself (but a realistic and budget-conscious one), that coffee is really, really, really good and is a nice treat every once in a while.

For now, the duo will be soon opening a pop-up shop for a few months, but no indication of where as of yet.

Echo Park resident Isabelle Dahlin opened up her new store, deKor, at the end of June just next door to the new restaurant Mohawk Bend on Sunset Boulevard. Promising a variety of candles, pottery, furniture, art, pillows and miscellaneous items, the theme is an eclectic array of Swedish stylings that will make you want to redecorate.

On her blog, Isabelle writes: “Ever since I was a child, I have always felt that your living environment greatly impacts how you feel about your life and how you treat those around you. This space is a reflection of my Scandinavian roots, my travels and my beautiful life in Los Angeles.”

Isabelle told us that not only does she live in Echo Park, but she’s in LOVE with Echo Park. “I wanted my store here because I love the people that live here and deKor is a very eclectic place so I think it fits with this amazing neighborhood,” she said in an email.

Prices range from $20 for the little stuff, and up to $4,000 for the larger furniture items (hey, it’s art!). Her favorite piece in the store? Reclaimed swings designed by deKor that can decorate your home on the inside or the outside.

By the way, LOVE those potted succulents outside the store!

Store Hours are Tuesday to Sunday from 11:00 am – 8:00 pm.
