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 Place...

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 friend about something other than your third act. Or maybe you’re pondering which suit to buy at Mattison, and you want the barista’s thoughts—they dress in Rag & Bone uniforms here, so you could have a worse second opinion.

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.
