Alfred Tea Room Opens In Brentwood

Back in March, I told you about the impending arrival of cult coffee shop Alfred’s less-caffeinated offshoot Alfred Tea Room to the  space at 11928 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood.  For all of you who have been eagerly checking for updates I have this happy news:  Alfred Tea opened this week.  Expect a menu of tea, milk tea, and matcha in a bright and cheery tiled setting with an outdoor patio.

Alfred Tea Room Coming To Brentwood…

It looks like specialty coffee purveyor Alfred is expanding in Brentwood.  Just a few storefronts away from their location on the corner of Montana and San Vicente, paper has gone up on the front of the space at 11928 San Vicente Blvd. announcing that a branch of Alfred Tea Room is moving in.  Not sure when they’re opening, but I’ll keep watching…

Peet’s Coffee Disappears From Brentwood

So this was a bit of a shocker…  Ever popular local fave caffeine shop Peet’s Coffee has abruptly pulled up stakes almost overnight from its historically significant landmark location at 11750 San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood.  Even while I was taking photos, locals were coming up to me and expressing shock at the loss of the neighborhood institution.  Maybe competition from nearby Alfred Coffee has been taking its toll.  I’ll keep watching…

Update:  I’ve had lot of people ask why Peet’s has closed…  I don’t have a confirmed answer, but a reader has heard that the lease renewal was too expensive, which is all-to-frequent in this neck of the woods.
