Fashionable LA java and juice shop Alfred Coffee's 500-square-foot mini-café will soon be pouring across the street. Per the celeb-faved meetup spot's Insta, its In the Alley at 8509 Melrose Avenue opens Monday, November 17th. It's located at that new retail/resto/fitness complex—where Alice+Olivia recently opened and Agent Provocateur's L'Agent is headed—at La Cienega and Melrose. Urban Daddy notes that alleyway café will feature communal stadium seating outside and "a gleaming brass bar" inside, where cold-brewed Stumptown coffee and Farmshop food will be served. Next up: Alfred Brentwood; stay tuned for more. [Instagram; Previously; Previously]
