BAYFOOD TRAVELS: Alfred Coffee (Los Angeles, CA) - But first, coffee. Coffee and bagels are the perfect thing to grab on your drive back after a busy weekend in L.A. My cousin had told me about this place when we first came into town, and the morning we were leaving was the perfect time to stop by and check it out!

There are a couple of Alfred Coffee locations, but I chose the one that’s in a little alley on Melrose in West Hollywood. I didn’t even realize that this location had bagels too, so this was perfect since it was my first meal of the day. The alley is cute with several patio tables and folding chairs lined up outside of the shops. Oh, and there’s a SoulCycle so you can work off your bagel. ;)

It’s a small coffee shop, but it’s decorated really nicely inside. Though the patterns are large and bold, it somehow works together. Most of the seating is outside, which works in Southern California since it isn’t very chilly. Our barista was nice and friendly and suggested what to order.

In the end, we ordered two lattes - mine with hazelnut - and an everything bagel from with scallion cream cheese from Yeastie Boys. Yeastie Boys is L.A.’s first bagel truck - and they’re legit. The bagel was soft that you could sink your teeth into it’s pillowy softness, and the cream cheese tasted so good with it! Alfred brews Stumptown coffee at their shop, and it was so smooth in latte form. I actually enjoyed Stumptown more this time around versus the time I actually visited its own shop.

It was really nice sitting outside in the alley and enjoying the sun. It’s a cute hidden spot that you can pop into on your way to do more shopping! Seriously, there a bunch of amazing brand stores and boutiques lined along those main streets.
