MY WORLD IN FULL COLOR

Dinette, Echo Park, copyright Diana Koenigsberg 2014Great coffee, and tasty, thoughtfully prepared food are what I get excited about when I go out. Besides the food, there is the space it is served in, which is often, sadly overlooked. But when it isn’t, and the design sensibility matches the vibe and intention of the food you’ve got this complete experience. I realize this is vague and pretentious statement… But still, you know what’s up when you walk into McDonald’s, yes?? It’s a clearly articulated experience.

Well at DINETTE there’s a sweet little vision happening. I absolutely love the chic Prussian Blue chosen to paint the exterior. It’s a tiny place, but the color draws you off the street and into the little take out window to order some treats. The interior is a small but kitchen. The menu for now, is homemade tarts, pizzas, small and perfect waffles, and coffee and tea that are all delicious.

I went to photograph the space and hang out with my friend Eric Pfleeger who did the branding work for DINETTE. Eric is good pals with owner Gareth Kantner, who also owns Cafe and Bar Stella, in Silver Lake.

Here’s the space.

A few weeks back, I made a trip with my family to Phoenix to visit my sister and her family. Her son Yosef had just turned 7. He desperately wanted a baby chick.
