A popular craft coffee chain known for their catchy slogan “But first, coffee” and celebrity cliental is opening a Westwood Village location.
As confirmed by a spokesperson for the company, Alfred Coffee will be opening at 1154 Westwood Boulevard (formerly a Peet’s Coffee) in the summer of 2021.
“The owner Josh Zad spent most of his childhood in Westwood Village; from UCLA summer camp to playing at the local arcade to getting ice cream (and CD’s) there with his late grandfather. Westwood will always hold a very special place in his heart and he’s always had an eye on bringing Alfred to this gem of a neighborhood when the space and time were right. In addition, Josh also had the pleasure of attending UCLA Anderson business school, furthering his already deep ties to the neighborhood,” the company wrote in an email.
Alfred Coffee has 11 locations in Los Angeles including in Venice, Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, Beverly Hills and Silver Lake, alongside an Austin shop and four Japanese shops.
