You’re living in the wrong place.
If you want a chocolate-dipped coffee cone on a sunlit stadium bench in the middle of a fancy alley...
You belong at Alfred in the Alley, a gleaming new caffeine hookup focused on cold-brew coffee, opening next Monday in West Hollywood.
Here’s your first stop when it’s 75 degrees... in November. A shaded, tree-covered alley spot on the opposite side of La Cienega as the original Alfred, with a gleaming brass bar. It just feels like the right kind of consciousness is coming your way. (See the slideshow here.)
That bar has two taps, both with cold-brewed Stumptown-y salvation flowing out of them. Order at the counter, maybe with a Farmshop bacon cheddar scone, an Il Forno Caldo sandwich or one of those chocolate-dipped coffee cones everyone likes. Then head out to communal stadium seating in the aforementioned alley. The one covered in attractive people. Which was a sound design choice.
Or if you’re just passing through, they’ll fill up a growler with cold brew for you to take home.
Might want to throw your bed away.
