Melrose Avenue is earning a brand new caffeine option soon, cleverly titled Coffee for Sasquatch. The shop lands just east of La Brea, and is the brainchild of owner Claire Ackad, who comes from the fashion PR world.
Like GoodBoyBob in Santa Monica, Ackad may not have a ton of direct coffee experience but plans to use her love of the stuff to craft a comfortable and slightly whimsical shop along one of LA’s most activated avenues. Just down the street Milk Bar is expected to begin construction soon, while in the other direction there’s the Mozzaplex and upscale sushi newcomer Umeda. Immediately next door will even be a new butcher shop from one of the city’s best meat men.
Coffee for Sasquatch plans so far to serve Ritual beans, and will keep AM through midday hours. The shop itself is still being finished out but there’s hope for an August arrival, and intrigued locals can follow along at the Coffee for Sasquatch Instagram page.
