Bustling West Adams is about to get its first dose of Alta, San Francisco chef Daniel Patterson’s upcoming modern soul food restaurant and attached daytime space. The first bit to arrive is the Adams Coffee Shop, an all-day hang for locals and anyone looking to fill up on espresso drinks, cold-pressed juice, and pastries.
Alta chef Keith Corbin will also be doing a pared-back daytime menu for Adams Coffee Shop starting on Thursday, with available options ranging from simple overnight oats to a breakfast sandwich, grain bowls with lots of vegetables, and a cold fried chicken sandwich.
The locally-designed space offers tons of natural light and exposed original brick, with the requisite house plants hanging around inside. There’s going to be room for a record player and lots of available reading material as well. As for timing, expect daily hours from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Corbin and Patterson’s highly anticipated Alta Adams will follow the Adams Coffee Shop shortly. There’s no official opening date for the newcomer but it should certainly be this month, with Corbin focusing on California produce and technique to create American comfort food with a soulful backbone. Both projects join a slew of newcomers either about to open or recently unveiled in West Adams, from nearby cafe Highly Likely to a rumored sandwich and beer project from Gjelina/Gjusta chef Travis Lett.
Update, October 2, 9:10 a.m.: The Alta team informs Eater that the opening has been pushed to Thursday of this week.
Adams Coffee Shop. 5359 W. Adams Blvd., Los Angeles, CA.
