End Of An Era


With 17 years in its location on Silver Lake Boulevard just north of Effie, The Back Door Bakery & Cafe was a neighborhood institution. Thanks to a heads-up from Sean Bonner about the place closing yesterday after being given 30 days notice to vacate by the building’s owner, Susan and I didn’t miss the opportunity for one last fried egg sammich:


Back door’s proprietors are actively looking to relocate and reopen but they say it may be awhile, and so in the meantime there will be a hole in the ‘hood where once there was a hole-in-the-wall hangout.  And regardless of whatever moves in to take the cafe’s place, something will be missing. Farewell Back Door, you will be missed.
