This is a place that evokes comforting memories of decades past, an independent bookstore, a place where you can go to find books you never knew existed, some used, some new, a place to drink coffee, enjoy a little food and sit outside on the patio with your dog, your friends or your book. Stories Books & Cafe is one of Echo Park’s many gems, almost lost to the pandemic economy. With a “little help from its friends,” it’s still there and will hopefully continue to add to the great low key Echo Park vibe for years to come. If you’d like to help out, their GoFundMe site is still active. Better yet, order your books from their comprehensive website.  Or best of all, go there! Their patio is open for seating, and their bookstore is open for browsing 10 am to 8 pm daily.  @storiesbooksandcafe
