4. Best of Coffee and Dine Places on Melrose

  • Alfred Coffee: With its floral wallpaper, beautiful illustrated walls, bright white mantle tiling, Alfred Coffee, the famous coffee place of Los Angeles is as renown as its neighboring luxury stores. The place where fashionable people hang out! Alfred Coffee is now available at other locations in LA but it started on Melrose.

Expensive but in a very nice environment, these restaurants are the perfect places for a romantic dinner or a trendy night out with friends.
