ECHO PARK — A new snack bar with a focus on tasty as well as healthy foods is opening its doors next month at 1620 W. Sunset Boulevard.
The snack bar, called Honey Hi, is owned by Caitlin Sullivan and Kacie Carter, who met in college and always dreamed of going into business together. They got the idea for the snack bar while working in high stress industries.
“After a lot of struggle, we found the best way to take care of ourselves was to learn about food and how it affected us,” said Sullivan. “We delved into nutrition and cooking as self care and never looked back.”
A few items that the quick serve restaurant will offer include probiotic juices, smoothies, grain and salad bowls, and bone-broth soups. No alcohol will be on the menu. It will be open for breakfast and lunch, 7 days a week.
For customers short on time, they will have a sizable “grab and go” section. The cozy 600-square-foot space will have limited seating.
Sullivan and Carter, who live in Echo Park, want to share their mission of self care with their community.
“This is such a diverse and magnetic neighborhood and we wanted to provide it with the nourishing, delicious food we love to make for our friends and family.”
Honey Hi is one of the many changes coming to the area. On the same block, the owners of Dinette are planning to open a large, new restaurant and a block away Sage Bistro, a vegan eatery, is expanding and adding a brewpub.
