Stories is a bookstore and cafe in the heart of Echo Park. It’s already special that this is a place where people still go to read and buy books. But on top of that, there’s a shaded back patio removed from the noise of Sunset Blvd, where you can drink coffee, eat sandwiches, and get some work done (there’s wifi too).
