Coffee Fix: Alfred Coffee, Los Angeles

Alfred Coffee Exterior

COFFEE FIX is a Cute LA series dedicated to the independent Coffee Shops in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. Being an entrepreneur means often you have meetings, brainstorms and mental breaks in coffee shops. Also, don't get me started on the eye candy potential of cute guys drinking coffee. This is a fun avenue to find hidden gems while doing meetings. Travel with me as I take care of business and get a coffee fix.

Alfred Coffee is becoming the IT coffee spot in Los Angeles. If you didn't know, now you do. I recently visited the original location on Melrose. This location is situated on a beautiful street covered with trees and high end boutiques - Marc Jacobs, Herve Leger and Nasty Gal to name a few. I grabbed a latte here after a commercial shoot. Fell in love with their branding and ambience. The skull art and quotes on the wall are also a nice touch. An added bonus there's a door inside that leads straight into chocolate heaven, Compartes Chocolatier.

Next time you're craving a visit I dare you to give them a try. I mean they're the home to the espresso shots in chocolate covered waffle cones. Need I say more?!

Coffee Fix: Coral Tree Café, Brentwood

COFFEE FIX is a Cute LA series dedicated to the independent coffee shops and restaurants in Los Angeles. When you start a business, the amount of meetings you take at coffee shops increases. I took it as an opportunity to find hidden gems in the process. 

Coral Tree Café, has three locations - Brentwood, Century City and Encino. I enjoy visiting the Brentwood location. Especially when I have meetings on the Westside - usually with my accountant. Therefore, Coral Tree Café is my slice of happiness in the midst of doing taxes.

Offering organic food and coffee, Coral Tree Café a great place for the health conscious. However, don't get afraid of the word "health" this food is full of flavor. Let's get to the coffee - in addition to being organic, it's shade grown and fairly traded. Shade grown means it's grown under a canopy of shade trees which provides a safe and natural habitat for wildlife. Fair trade supports small farmers (indie!) by helping them get a fair price for their goods, hence the name "fair trade."

The interior of Coral Tree Café is open concept with large windows allowing natural light to flood in. With lots of large wood tables, this place is great for studying and group meetings. Between inside and the patio you'll always find a seat. A holy grail in crowded Los Angeles!

For coffee, we had to go fancy with the vanilla lattes. For food, the Chicken Rosemary Sandwich and Steak Panini (a favorite!). The Chicken Rosemary Sandwich is made using brie cheese, fresh pear, arugula and chicken breast - the brie cheese makes this a winner. The Steak Panini is grilled angus beef hanger steak, bbq onions, roma tomatoes, avocado and provolone cheese

Thank you Simon and Amber of Coral Tree Café for allowing me to visit and take these photos. Enjoy!

Coffee Fix: Sweet Butter Kitchen, Sherman Oaks

COFFEE FIX is a new Cute LA series dedicated to the independent Coffee Shops in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. Being an entrepreneur means often you have meetings, brainstorms and mental breaks in coffee shops. Also, don't get me started on the eye candy potential of cute guys drinking coffee. This is a fun avenue to find hidden gems while doing meetings. Travel with me as I take care of business and get a coffee fix.

Sweet Butter Kitchen, is an eye catching spot located in Sherman Oaks. It has an inviting feel, with it's pale yellow exterior and outdoor seating. Most compare it to a sidewalk cafe in Europe. Worked on some commercial treatments here after the Fischer Clothing shoot.

The interior is cozy with inspiring quotes, goodies, sparklers and coffee! Sometimes I get fancy coffee, but for the most part, I'm a regular brewed coffee chick. With coffee, I ordered the SB Breakfast Sandwich. This sandwich is sunny side up egg, niman ranch applewood bacon, roasted tomatoes, arugula and dijon aioli on grilled country bread, with arugala salad. It was delicious and yes, breakfast is an all day affair.
