Coffee shop proposed for former vintage store

ECHO PARK – Work is underway to transform the former Bear Cat vintage store, which shut down less than a year after opening last summer, into a coffee shop at 1532 Sunset Boulevard, according to online city records and a construction worker in the storefront. The Eastsider is seeking more info about the owners and their plans but city records show the owners are looking to change the use of the space to a coffee shop from a bar, which appears to be a reference to the Los Pinos bar that occupied the space more than a decade ago.

The new coffee shop is located on a section of Sunset that is poised to see more change. The cafe is next door to the former Barragan’s Mexican restaurant, which closed last December after being sold to a new owner, and across the street from a new restaurant now under construction in the former Nuvia’s restaurant.
