The signs outside a Silver Lake strip mall still say Box & Ship and Silverlake Cleaners but inside a new coffeehouse and restaurant is in the works. Modern Eats plans to open in a few weeks in a building on Glendale Boulevard near Fletcher Drive that houses a Subway sandwich shop and a laundry (Anyone know if this building was a former Kinney shoes store?). A person involved with the business, which does not have website yet, said Modern Eats will start with a breakfast and lunch menu before adding dinner service. Expect a bakery, too. A Starbucks is just around the corner but Modern Eats may fill the void for an independent coffeehouse and restaurant following last year’s closure of the Coffee Table a few blocks west on Rowena.
