Saturday Morning Sights in Echo Park

Saturday Morning Sights in Echo Park

"It is not down on any map, true places new are."

I moved to Echo Park last month and have barely scratched the surface of places to grab brunch, mainly because I have been going to my usual breakfast places...it's easy, you wake up hungry and want something now! But, this morning I decided to explore more of my new 'hood on foot. I went down Glendale Blvd., walking until I found The Semi-Tropic a small and comfortable cafe on the corner of Glendale Blvd and Alvarado Street.

As soon as I walked in I was greeted by a friendly server and told to take a seat anywhere. After looking at the menu I couldn't decide between the Chicken Tamale or the Salmon Toast and oh! the Croque Monsieur. But Sam suggested the Salmon Toast since I wasn't starving. 

The Salmon Toast was perfect, light and filling lots of flavor with dill cream cheese, capers and sesame sprinkled on top. Tasty!
