Call Me Alfred
A Low-Key Café Hangout... on Melrose Place
Coffee. We assume you’re familiar.
It’s just the thing that makes it possible for you to go on living, that’s all.
And that’s even before you throw in cinnamon rolls, sandwiches and an elegant two-story hideout on Melrose
Give a warm, wide-awake welcome to Alfred Coffee & Kitchen
, an earnest fuel-up spot to help you
through the part of life in which you are conscious, opening Wednesday.
Say you’re actually on one of those coffee dates people allegedly go on. Or maybe you want to talk with a

In any case, you’ll want to come here and bask in the bi-level elegance
involving floral prints, a handsome white fireplace and some
inappropriately placed mustaches. Grab a coffee, an Americano, whatever—Stumptown provides the beans, and
those mustaches will be found on the cup sleeves. Soon the place will have sandwiches and salads, but for
now you’ll just have to make do with cinnamon rolls
and apricot danishes.
The world can be a cruel place.
