In the market for a nearly ready-to-go bakery/market in Silver Lake? Looks like you’re in luck, as a corner spot along Bellevue, just southeast of Silver Lake Blvd, has hit the market.

The retail space located at 2825 Bellevue Avenue was first spotted on realtor Clint Luken’s site, and offers a few tantalizing details. Most notably, there’s already a Type 20 license for takeaway beer and wine on hand, and the place is zoned as a bakery/market, so someone looking to make breads or pastries in-house should have no trouble at all.

The online post detailing the El Criollo Market and corner location mentions high ceilings, exposed steel framework and lots of brick — the Eastside version of Gjusta or Dudley Market, perhaps? It could be a good fit, considering the building’s bones, which date to 1926.

If you want to talk money, you’ll have to reach out to the realtor directly — they’re a big Silver Lake/Echo Park team, and helped to bring bustling Pine & Crane to Sunset last year.

Update: The original version of this post indicated that the original image was accurate, when it's only a rendering of a possible look for the exterior.
