Alfred Coffee not only has multiple locations throughout the city but also has unique and distinguishable art to accompany each. No other wall has made such an impact as the Melrose Place location’s “But first, coffee” signage. I mean how many shirts, stickers and mugs were created as a result of this? They started a movemnst – sorry, movement...I haven’t have my coffee yet. 
Fun fact: Alfred had the phrase trademarked ☕️☕️☕️
Where: Various locations

Just a short walk from Alfred Coffee is the lesser known Alfred Tea Room. Come for their dairy-free matcha soft serve and stay for their very punny and adorable pink walls. Matcha the pics you snap will be gram-worthy, I promise.

Wear your heart on your back with this colorful heart adorned wall in Venice. The vibrant dripping hearts design is the creation of LA street artist James Goldcrown, and can be found on several walls throughout the city. While the Bardonna wall in Santa Monica is another longtime favorite, Goldcrown recently gave Alfred Coffee's Beverly Hills locale a lovely glo up.

A wall that tells people not to Instagram it is just asking to be Instagrammed. And we’ll happily oblige. *Hey Alexa, play “Ironic” by Alainis Morisette* Being able to eat Milk Bar’s cereal soft serve and crack pie while you snap are the cherries sprinkles on top.

Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed...and had clearly never seen the Paul Smith store on Melrose Avenue. Though all of the brand’s LA-based stores boast a different colored wall, none is more infamous than the “Pink Wall” which can be seen flooded with people at any hour of the day.
Where: 8221 Melrose Avenue, West Hollywood

Across the street from the notorious Pink Wall sits Carrera Cafe, an Instagram-friendly and Instagram-encouraged coffee shop. Apart from being able to screen print Ryan Gosling’s face (among other things) on your latte, the cafe’s wall bordering N Harper Ave is known for its rotating murals. With this wall constantly changing to highlight hot topics and upcoming releases, it's best to keep tabs on its current displays by checking out the Carrera Cafe location tag on Instagram.
