Tuna Toast

By Canyon Coffee

Friends of the Valley Casey and Ally recently opened the doors to their first Canyon Coffee shop in Echo Park. Not only is the space beautiful and the coffee and tea brewed to perfection, but they have a delicious selection of toast and sandwiches on the menu. Here’s the recipe for the cafe favorite, Tuna Toast.


  • A 3/4” slice of your favorite bread
  • Herbed mayo
  • Ortiz tuna
  • Shallots
  • Parsley
  • Capers
  • Lemon juice
  • Aleppo peppers


  1. Cut & toast a 3/4” slice of your favorite bread (we use a pullman sandwich loaf by Bub & Grandma’s in Echo Park)
  2. Spread herbed mayo
  3. Lay tuna on top of mayo, flatten out with a fork to distribute evenly across the bread
  4. Sprinkle 1 tsp capers
  5. Add pinch of aleppo pepper (spread evenly across)
  6. Add shallots
  7. Garnish with parsley
  8. Spritz of lemon juice Drizzle of Wonder Valley Olive Oil
  9. Pinch of salt to finish
Olive Oil
Wonder Valley Olive Oil elevates any meal through its bright, herbaceous, peppery flavor and delivers a delicious dose of polyphenols, the powerful antioxidant associated with longevity of life. Our 2022 harvest oil is a blend of Arbequina, Favalosa and Tuscan olives hand-picked from the groves in Lake County, CA and pressed within hours of harvest by a master miller.

Meet Canyon Coffee

Ally and Casey started Canyon Coffee back in 2016 to share their passion for the ritual of coffee and the warmth it brought to their mornings. After selling their coffee wholesale and online for 6 years, they just opened their first coffee shop in August. Tucked in a corner unit of a building at the heart of Echo Park, they serve up their coffee alongside delicious, substantial toast and fresh-squeezed orange juice — and a selection of coffee and tea drinks on tap.
