Progress at 5 Line Restaurant

A changing facade along Colorado Boulevard

At the corner of Colorado Boulevard and Caspar Avenue the building that formerly housed Corner Pizzeria has been undergoing a bit of a transformation. According to Eagle Rock Patch, the building will become a “two-in-one restaurant”, combing a Big Mama and Papa’s Pizzeria and casual bar. The two establishments will be connected by a common door and go under the name “5 Line”, a reference to the former streetcar line that used to run through Eagle Rock along Colorado and Eagle Rock Boulevard.

5 Line remains a work in progress but one can already see the exterior resembling the look of the Los Angeles Railway Yellow Car line the restaurant takes its name from.

Work remains to be done

The yellow car exterior is promising, it’ll be interesting to see 5 Line once the restaurant is complete. Read more about Eagle Rock’s former streetcar line here and here .
