Preview: Beacon Echo Park — VIDEO

Echo Park Lake is one of my favorite parks/places in Los Angeles. Whenever I’m on the East side, I love to stop by and take a walk by the fountain. The only thing missing: A cafe serving delicious food. But now, Beacon Echo Park by Echo Park Lake is doing just that! The menu includes yummy toasts, and many other items. I got to preview the spot before its grand opening on Feb. 11-12 and I seriously love any opportunity to go to my favorite park.

One of the baristas made me an amazing vanilla latte and then I sampled the Veggie Sandwich and the Fruit Toast, which is one of the most gorgeous toasts ever. Both dishes were so flavorful and I can’t wait to return to try more dishes on the menu! I highly recommend checking out this brand new spot if you’re taking a relaxing stroll by Echo Park Lake.

During its Grand Opening Weekend on Feb. 11-12 from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Beacon Echo Park is offering the following special: Buy 1 menu item, get 1 50% off (equal or lesser value) all day. Each customer will also be receiving a coupon for same offer valid after Grand Opening Weekend.
