Coffee at Alfred’s

coffee at Alfred's, one of the most instagrammable coffee shops in Los Angeles - M Loves M @marmar

If you guys want to know one of my absolute favorite hobbies, it’s checking out a new coffee shop. I walk in, am immediately greeted by that delicious aroma of rich, chocolatey coffee beans, hear the milk frother hissing, and see a pastry case full of delicious treats, and I’m all smiles! My go-to spot is usually Peet’s {it’s a classic and they always do such a good job}, but sometimes I love to try a new spot, especially when it’s cute! There are so many great Instagrammable coffee shops in LA, and I think Alfred’s is definitely top of the list. There are a few locations now all over the city, and the newest one {or one of the newest ones} is right by my parent’s house. I went to check it out the other day, and even though it was quite warm out, I still got a hot drink. No matter the weather, I typically always go for a hot latte. What about you?

drinking my current favorite: an almond milk latte! love this latte art at Alfred's- M Loves M @marmar enjoying the summer breeze at Alfred's - M Loves M @marmar my favorite pink mules at the moment - M Loves M @marmar loving this bag with neutral outfits for Summer - M Loves M @marmar

My go-to coffee order these days is an almond milk latte. I’ll add some honey and cinnamon afterward too. If I’m feeling a little fancier, I’ll get a cinnamon hazelnut latte. That’s Matthew’s favorite, especially around the holidays!

I wore a casual jeans outfit for coffee at Alfred’s with this fun macrame fringe top. I love the beige/neutral color and the soft material. Such a good piece that I’m going to be wearing a bunch! I also love these jeans. The fit is so flattering and the distressed knees add a casual appeal. Perfect coffee shop outfit, if you ask me!

Happy Thursday everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by!

    You look so cute. The detail on that top is amazing, and I love your outfit as a whole.
    I like coffee, but I only drink it at work to stay awake haha. I use Oatly’s barista oat milk.

    Checking out new coffee shops is my favorite hobby as well! Something about hanging out in a coffee shop and smelling coffee brewing is comforting and exciting!

    Love your whole look! Just adorable. I also love finding new coffee shops. I just moved to a new city, so one of my favorite things to do is spend a couple hours one Saturday afternoon in a coffee shop. Nothing gets better than that!

    Such a cute coffee shop, the ginkgo tile floor! Love the texture and gorgeous tassels on that top and your orange mani. Your nails match the koi fish on your phone case. Fun post ☺️

  • Alfred’s is totally on my list to visit, Mara! You know, “Do it for the ‘gram” haha! I always, always, always order iced coffee year round, even in the winter.

    LOVE this post! I feel like coffee shops all over the country have their own fashion style. A coffee shop in Brooklyn looks different than a coffee shop in Texas, and all over! Such a cute post- love all the orange (and underrated color if you ask me!)

  • Gorgeous, babe!

    Ohm I love this post! And this Alfred’s is right in my neighborhood, in Studio City! SO glad that you visited! I should try it out too (not sure if my kids will like their ice-blenders but it’s worth the try! ) 🙂

    I love Alfred’s and I miss it! Can’t wait to come back for a visit. 🙂

  • Love this outfit, especially the rosey pink mules! Also, you should do a makeup tutorial for this look; I’m loving it!

  • I finally made my way to Alfred’s last time I was in LA. I went to the WeHo location- so darn cute! Eventhough WeHo isn’t my normal stomping grounds! I’ll be sure to check out the Studio City location next time I’m in the valley!
    I absolutely love checking out cute coffee shops too- it’s my favorite thing to do. By the way, I love your shoes!!!

    I tried this place for the first time a few weeks ago – I got a chai latte. It was so good! I love the decor, too. And of course, I had to stop by Salt & Straw afterwards! Have you been to their tea room? I’m itching to go!
