Woodcat Coffee is a cozy neighborhood coffee shop & roaster located in Echo Park, Los Angeles. Woodcat was founded in 2014 by veteran coffee couple and hyper-locals, Saadat & Janine Awan who built everything with little money, lots of heart and their own hands. In everyone's favorite year, 2020, Woodcat began roasting & serving our own coffee and grew our family to include a second shop in Silver Lake Dinosaur Coffee. We also picked up a few valued wholesale accounts and launched our online shop!
Community has always been at the heart of what we do and why we do it. Our hope is that the cafes provide a welcoming space to bring people together through the daily ritual and mutual appreciation of really good coffee. 
Our dedicated & friendly team of baristas look forward to serving you delicious drinks and pastries at both of our locations. Your support and your encouragement of our small local mom & pop business since 2014 has been so very appreciated. Support local, shop small.

Why is your logo a rabbit? What even is a woodcat?
The word woodcat is actually a ye olden times nickname for a hare. No, it's not a cat made of wood, but a "cat" OF the woods. It's a long, personal story on how we came to decide on Woodcat as a name for our shop and one much easier to share in person. The TLDR is that back when CDs were a thing and we first began dating, we found a cute song called Woodcat by a UK band Tunng about two lovers seeking out forever together as hares no matter the cost and it just stuck with us. Plus who doesn't love a rabbit?!
