There's only one Starbucks within the boundaries of Silver Lake—a testament to the nabe's particular tastes when it comes to coffee. This month, fashion-faved Alfred Coffee is bringing its hipster-approved Stumptown sips and more to the 'hood, and it's setting up shop just steps away from Clare Vivier.
Opening Monday, August 24th, the 800-square-foot coffee shop will focus on its java menu—cold brews, espresso, #10dollarlattes, and more—before potentially expanding to grab-and-go grub. In addition to debuting with limited-edition coffee cup sleeves designed by its bag maven neighbor, the space will mirror the vibe of Alfred's star-frequented Melrose Place outpost, but "a little darker and edgier."
