Coffee For Sasquatch Climbs Into the Melrose Morning Conversation

The adorable new caffeine stop opens on Friday

Don’t look now, but here comes Coffee for Sasquatch. The lumbering Melrose shop is filled with cool natural light and loads of greenery, along with an outline of Sasquatch himself along one wall.

Coffee for Sasquatch is the work of Claire Ackad, a first-time coffee bar owner with a background in fashion PR and marketing. That means she had quite a hand in the finished look and feel of the storefront just east of La Brea, working alongside Dan Brunn Architecture to bring the long, white room to life. Seating is predictably minimalist — as is the coffee style these days — with small stools, curving communal benches, and loads of blonde wood accents.

On the coffee front, Ackad and crew will be getting their beans from Ritual Coffee Roasters in San Francisco, and using a La Marzocco Strada espresso machine. Expect straightforward coffee drinks plus a tight collection of teas, turmeric and chai drinks, and more. Food will come from La Tropezienne Bakery, with doughnuts from Fonuts.

Coffee for Sasquatch officially wakes up on Friday, September 29, keeping daily hours from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., with a shortening to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
