Downtown LA breakfast spot Wake & Late reemerges today with a whole new look and feel. The mostly A.M. destination at 6th and Main Street has for a while now been considered among the best spots for a quick morning breakfast burrito, but now owners have redesigned the restaurant to maximize easy flow, and are partnering with Postmates for Downtown LA delivery.

The new-look restaurant space includes not only a takeout window but room for 18 diners inside, plus a standing bar and small patio. The burritos themselves have been overhauled by Jame Enoteca chef Jackson Kalb; the opening menu is below. Right now Wake & Late is open Wednesday through Sunday from 7:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., but will expand into everyday service soon, including late night weekend hours once again.
