Love this place. Some of the best food I've eaten. Bacon cheeseburgers are amazing & service is very good. Banana nut pancakes are like wow!

Echo Park's Brite Spot...a favorite L.A. institution since 1949. Whether traveling solo or with friends, everyone's welcome to enjoy the old school counter and rockstar glitter booths.
