Alfred

8428 Melrose Pl, Los Angeles, CA 90069, USA

The flagship Alfred Coffee opened on picturesque Melrose Place in 2013. Since, the café has expanded to include locations in Brentwood and Silver Lake, as well as a Studio City location, an outpost in the hip Line Hotel in ever-evolving Koreatown, a tea room in West Hollywood, and a mini location just minutes from the original. Widely known for its relatable slogan, BUT FIRST, COFFEE, and its favorite menu item, the Ten Dollar Latte (retired earlier this year to make room for more oat milk lattes), the upscale shop is full of heavily Instagrammed areas, from the lettered decals to the modern and charming accent walls and artwork. There’s always a photo shoot or two going on here, but that doesn’t seem to bother the MacBook-armed freelancers and creative types who flock to the space for the Wi-Fi and matcha lattes on weekdays.

Hashtag Coffee

An “A” logo complete with antlers; custom mustache coffee sleeves; chalk art, potted hanging plants, baristas dressed in Rag & Bone, and regular celebrity sightings: Alfred Coffee on the haute block of Melrose Place is perhaps the trendiest (and most instagrammable) cafe in Los Angeles. Serving Stumptown coffee fresh from their roaster in downtown Los Angeles, Alfred has been fueling the fashionable with some of the country’s finest caffeine since 2013 and is keeping the buzz alive with new concept locations, each with its own hashtag-ready decor twist.
