There is only a small handful of independently owned places where one can simply go for a cup of coffee (or a cup of joe, or in my case, a cup of hot chocolate) in this North East side of L.A.
Named after the neighborhood and residing across the street from Lincoln High School, Cafe in the Heights has been known for its sandwiches, drinks (aside from coffee and hot chocolate, they also serve shakes and smoothies and teas and other sweets) and has become one of the few handful of better known places in Lincoln Heights.
Aside from serving customers food and drinks, the place has hosted numerous events and has brought out local organizations to entertain the crowd. Organizations ranging from arts of all forms, to aerobics to religious following, all of which have gathered and have contribute their time and efforts with the crowd.
Cafe in the Heights have been a place filled with delightful surprises and moments of shock; nevertheless, it has been one of the few places where it has brought out the best from within the community and has shown a great potential to what this community can become.
And so you can imagine how disappointing it has been for me to hear the news and see a place like Cafe in the Heights closed down after a short four year run.
Below are a few pictures of Cafe in the Heights:
