The opening of K2 restaurant in the former Eat Well space earlier this month filled an empty and derelict storefront in the heart of Silver Lake’s Sunset Junction with a sleek and glossy diner. It’s the most recent of several new stylish cafes and shops that have popped up at the crossroads of Sunset and Santa Monica boulevards. While customers have packed into the booths and sidewalk tables of K2, a block away and across the street, a longtime Sunset Junction establishment, Tsunami Coffeehouse (pictured at right) sits empty and quiet after closing its doors at the beginning of the month. A “For Rent” sign hangs over the entrance. Tsunami, operated by the nonprofit Sunset Junction Neighborhood Alliance, which also organizes the annual Sunset Junction Street Fair, opened in 1995 at a time when cappuccinos, vegan fare and shops selling $465 desk lamps were not the part of the neighborhood scene. Alliance director Michael McKinley said Tsunami closed as of Sept. 1. He declined to say more about the former cafe.
