Thoughtful Ingredients Where to Eat Near Echo Park
Our favorite Sunday brunch spot is Honey Hi. Our go-to drink is a matcha latte with housemade almond and pumpkin seed milk. The Breakfast Bowl is Honey Hi’s take on the American breakfast—farmers market lettuces, sweet potato hash, a poached farm egg, heritage bacon and avocado. The kitchen is entirely free of gluten, refined sugar and processed vegetable oils.
Satisfy Your Taste Buds Where to Eat Near Echo Park
Mhzh in Silverlake is like no other in LA. It almost feels like you’re teleported to the streets of New York or Tel Aviv. Wear a sweater if you’re dining in the winter, as most of the seating is outside. Always order the hummus with the pickles—truly the best hummus ever.
Truly Tasty Where to Eat Near Echo Park
The food is stunning and the atmosphere is absolutely lovely at Botanica. Sit out on the back patio in the summer with a glass of natural wine. They work closely with local farmers and producers, and the care that they put into their restaurant is so evident throughout the entire dining experience. The lamb kabobs are perfectly spiced and not too heavy.

Cookbook is our favorite place to go for locally sourced products. In addition to all the beautiful farmers market produce they sell, they have a substantial lineup of sauces, soups and dips to take home for easy dinners and picnics. It’s tiny and very community-focused. The best time to go is in the afternoon during the week!
Away From It All Where to Eat Near Echo Park
After brunch, head to The Self-Realization Fellowship in Mt. Washington. It is a quiet, open outdoor space for meditation and reflection. It is so peaceful and tranquil—you completely forget you’re in a big city. Park in the surrounding neighborhood of Mt. Washington and walk to the gardens to see the beautiful homes in the area.
