News of a store opening up in Studio City has been percolating for a long time now, but we’ve finally closed in on an official date for the doors to open at Alfred Coffee & Kitchen in the Valley. According to Alfred insiders, the new date is September 12th, 2016, and the coffee retailer urges customers to keep an eye on their Instagram feed for impending news of a cool opening party.
In case you're counting, the Studio City spot will mark the blogger-beloved coffee house's sixth location (including the pretty-in-pink Tea Room). At the new store, you can look forward to those mouth-watering Yeastie Boys bagels, the #10dollarlatte, kombucha on tap, nitro cold brew on tap, ceremonial-grade matcha, the yummy and ridiculous #alfredcone, and eats from Cafe Gratitude.
Take note that the official Alfred locations website lists the Studio City location as opening in July, with store hours of 6:30am to 6:30pm, but we're told that the new date is firm at September 12th.
