Canyon Coffee Echo Park Cafe


Opening Summer 2022!

We are so excited to open our first coffee shop in the neighborhood we'ved called home for years. Look forward to great coffee, toast and a place to run into your neighbors.
In addition to serving our locally roasted organic coffee, we will be featuring an assortment of coffee and tea drinks on tap, fresh-made pastries, and a simple toast menu. As with our coffee, we will pride ourselves on sourcing quality ingredients for our food menu.

What's going on in the space?

If you live in Echo Park and have seen our window signs up for the last few months, you might be wondering: "When are they going to open?" It's a question we get asked on a daily basis when we're in the space. Here's the background and timeline:

  • May 2021: seeing the space is available, we reach out to the landlord to inquire about signing a lease; lease negotiations ensue
  • October 2021: we get the keys to the space
  • November 2021: renovation plans are created and submitted to the city of Los Angeles building and health departments
  • March 2022: renovations begin in the middle of the month
  • June 2022 (present): work has been proceeding according to plan, with only partial hold-ups while waiting for health and building inspections

As of early June, we are still aiming to complete our renovations by the end of June. Once we have approval to open from the City, we will hire and train our opening team, and then it will be time to CELEBRATE that we are open!

Hopeful expected opening time is mid-July, 2022.

Canyon Coffee is a specialty coffee roasting company founded in Los Angeles in 2016. Please visit our About page to learn more about us.

In spring 2021, the space at 1559 Echo Park Ave became available. This is the corner spot of a building at the heart of Echo Park, a neighborhood where we (the owners) have called home for years. Formerly home to Chango, a coffee shop that operated from 2002 to 2018, we knew how beloved this location was to the community.
We wanted to keep it owned and operated by, for and of the community, and we signed the lease in fall of 2022. We’re excited to offer our locally roasted organic coffee, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and a simple food program including pastries, toast and grab-and-go sandwiches.
