It may be devastatingly hip in both attitude and décor, but Alfred Coffee & Kitchen wears its handlebar mustache well. Swing by this West Hollywood java shop to witness a young, tanned (and invariably Rag & Bone-clad) barista fashion you a mean Americano. The Wi-Fi is free, the coffee is courtesy Stumptown, the pastries are tasty and the experience is irresistibly Instagram-able (Seriously. That “But first, coffee” decal should have its own handle.).

Two words: cute and delicious! And while, yes, somewhat expensive, the service and quality of the food and drinks make up for it. I visit the Brentwood location frequently to grab a Nitro Cold Brew coffee and an almond croissant to go. The perfect treat for a lazy Sunday! They also have healthy bite sized snacks and small to-go meals.
I visited the Silver Lake location, and enjoyed a perfectly fashioned almond latte. In addition to getting my caffeine fix, I also had all of my questions answered by the friendly barista. For one, despite advertising “But first, coffee” he told me that they are fine if you stop by for coffee after eating, going to a walk, or watching TV. What a relief! Second, he told me that he wasn’t sure if any of the coffee shop’s regular screenwriting patrons had their scripts picked up, but he would update me if he heard any success stories. Don’t let the mustache wallpaper scare you—this place is far from intimating and just down to have a great time and serve delicious beverages.
