New Eagle Rock cafe coming to Colorado Boulevard


EAGLE ROCK —  Behind paper-covered windows, work is underway to convert a former flower shop at 2040 Colorado Boulevard into a “cafe/gelato shop,”  according to the Department of Building & Safety.

It’s not known what the new cafe will be serving or when it expects to open. But city records indicate that a company called Primework Group LLC will be opening a restaurant called The Melt Spot in the storefront.  If you got any intel on this place, please leave a comment or submit your tip i the form below.

  1. So great to see so many new businesses moving into the neighborhood. Keep ’em coming!

  2. Melted gelato? hmm

  3. It looks like this is a franchise type of place. There’s one at the Westfield Topanga mall.

    Kind of an underwhelming addition to the neighborhood

  4. Please choose sides:

    A) All right, just what I’ve been waiting for! This will be a great addition to the neighborhood!

    B) Oh, no, not another cookie-cutter hipster magnet! This will ruin the neighborhood!

    • It looks like there is another option:

      C) Yuck, a chain franchise is coming to the neighborhood and will certainly ruin it.

  5. This place just opened and is a warm, friendly family owned restaurant with desert specialities. Definitely a nice addition to the neighborhood. The crepes and gelato I tried were so good.
