Etchea opened two of their bakeries and cafes in different parts of Downtown Los Angeles last year, one for the students near USC and the other for the desk jockeys near Hope and Third street. It’s where you can slip in for La Colombe coffee, fresh-baked croissants, muffins, bread pudding and crusty sourdough bread made from a recipe that goes back generations.
Etchea was fortunate to be voted as one of the top 10 best breads in Los Angeles! The Tasting Table featured our beloved sourdough bread as their #4 pick for the best bread in Los Angeles. The Tasting Table describes our bread as a “tangy sourdough recipe predating the Gold Rush. Baked using a traditional Basque technique that dates back centuries, it's fantastic on its own, but we suppose you could fill it with clam chowder, too.”
At Etchea Cafe & Bakery, we provide only the highest quality products to our customers. For this reason, we offer only the best coffee at both of our locations—La Colombe. The owners of La Colombe are experts in their field and have recently been featured on the Travel Channel’s show the “Dangerous Grounds” for their superior product! In “Dangerous Grounds”, Todd Carmichael travels the globe searching for the highest-grade of coffee in the world. He explores exotic and dangerous locations for the most rare beans available. La Colombe was featured on the show for their excellent quality product and smooth taste!
