Storefront Report: Shy owners take over former Echo Park bakery

The new owners of the former Delilah Bakery in Echo Park are attracting attention as they renovate the small corner storefront and test new paint colors on the exterior.  A passing motorists yells out from his car to find out when they are opening .  But the people working on the small building at Echo Park and Lucretia avenues declined to say much, except for one woman who told The Eastsider that the new business should be open within six weeks.


  1. If it turns into a hair salon I will have no choice but to disembowel myself on the premises.

  2. I saw a large fridge by back door as I drove by into work this morning.

  3. given that some of the bakery cases were left on the sidewalk for grabs last week, I’m pretty sure its not going to be a bakery any more. arf.

    • uh , maybe they just want new shit in their own style , not someones hand me downs.

      • that stuff looked pretty beat: big sections missing a finish, scratches and dings. if i was going to open a new place I wouldn’t want that stuff either. can’t wait to see what goes in.

  4. I hope it’s a store where I can buy an $800 blanket to wrap myself in while I lay on the floor.

  5. 3 shirts, some over priced ceramics and pillows, a couple nature scented candles, open one hour a day.

  6. i’m thinking car parts.

  7. I’m loving this comment section

  8. Not Another Neighbor

    We need either a hardware store or a stripclub. Both are sorely missing from the leafy north-Sunset side of Echo Park.

    Or a proper liquor store. Because we’re all drunks up in here.

  9. I asked the guy painting the outside door yesterday and he said it was going to be a bakery just like it was before.

  10. Speaking of bakeries, has anyone gone to Taron, in East Hollywood? It’s on Hollywood Boulevard, across from Ara’s Pastry (a bit east of Normandie). I go there for tasty, cheap Armenian pizzas or a spicy cheese Beorek. Non-trendy, spartan place. Just a counter, a simple menu, and a huge oven.

    • you have to check out lemon poppy kitchen in glassell park- they make these things called ‘planchitas’ for $5 which are stuffed with vegetables in super soft and savory dough. So good! plus they have homemade jams and scones and biscuits- it’s really good!

  11. A weed collective please? so i can take the DASH to get my stash.
