Those famous pioneers of the “But First, Coffee” neon sign, Alfred Coffee & Kitchen, are at it again. Owner Josh Zad has just opened his latest Beverly Hills location to the public, and it’s a fair bit more quaint than most of his other, much more colorful outlets.

Like Alfred in Studio City, which opened last year, Alfred Beverly Hills carries a throwback, almost English aesthetic. Inside the shop offers more muted tones and the requisite white tile, but even the neon signage here has been given a dampened glow. Hand-painted signage on the windows out front advertise cold brew floats and breakfast burritos, with gauzy white curtains beyond.

Otherwise, this Alfred is much the same as many of the others, doing breakfast through evening service using Stumptown beans. The former Jacopo’s Pizzeria space on Beverly Drive will also be serving Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams for said floats, as well as matcha and more.

The official opening of this latest Alfred, with the Beverly Hills mayor and all, was last weekend; hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Don’t expect this latest location to slow down Zad though — he’s still got a new shop in Tokyo to open soon.
