Alfred Coffee & Kitchen

Nov 24th, 2014 | By | Category: This and That

At one point last year, I mentioned that I would occasionally be blogging about stalk-worthy locales that do not have a film connection.  Today’s post chronicles one of those places.  A few months ago, fellow stalkers Becky and Anushika told me about Alfred Coffee & Kitchen, a quaint West Hollywood café that they thought I would adore.  They were right.  (To be fair, though, it was a pretty sure bet – I’ve yet to meet a coffee shop I didn’t like.  )  When I first […]



The Coffee Pot from “90210”

Apr 4th, 2012 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

As I mentioned back in March in my post about Bar Keeper in Silver Lake, the whimsical little barware store that stood in for Upon Galley in the 2005 movie A Lot Like Love, one locale that I had been absolutely itching to stalk in recent weeks was the Coffee Pot, an Echo Park-area café that appeared in the Season 4 episode of fave show 90210 titled “Babes in Toyland”.  And while tracking down this location required minimal effort on my part, stalking it would […]



Casbah Café from “A Lot Like Love”

Mar 13th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Today’s blog is going to be a short one as I am heading out to the eye doctor in a bit to have my eyes dilated, which, second to being on an airplane, is my least favorite activity in the entire world. Speaking of flying, US Magazine recently published an article about celebrity riders which featured actor Billy Crystal’s “Flight Preboard Information”. The “Other notes” section of Billy’s rider states, “Normally holds hands w/ family during takeoff and landing. Keep informed of […]



Frank’s Coffee Shop and Restaurant from “Larry Crowne”

Jan 4th, 2012 | By | Category: Movie Locations

A few days before Christmas, while I was wallowing in a horrible head cold, the Grim Cheaper and I sat down to watch the 2011 flick Larry Crowne. Neither of us had very high hopes for the movie as it had received such horrible reviews, but I am very happy to report that we both ended up loving it. So much so that we watched it again a few days later when my parents came to town to celebrate Christmas with us. The whimsical storyline […]



Johnie’s Coffee Shop Restaurant on Wilshire

Sep 28th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

Because I encountered so much filming location misinformation while researching my post on Bob’s Big Boy Broiler in Downey last week, I decided that I just had to write a blog about the place’s sister eatery, the now-defunct Johnie’s Coffee Shop Restaurant on Wilshire Boulevard in the Miracle Mile District of Los Angeles, which has also appeared in countless productions over the years.  So I dragged the Grim Cheaper right on out to stalk the place this past Saturday afternoon.

Johnie’s Coffee Shop […]



Figaro Bistrot from “Made of Honor”

Aug 30th, 2011 | By | Category: Movie Locations

As I mentioned in my post about Le Petit Bistro back in early August, one location that I have been longing to stalk for quite some time now is Figaro Bistrot, an adorable little French cafe that has appeared in numerous productions over the years, most notably the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2009 advertising campaign which featured pop star Madonna.  For whatever reason, though, the Grim Cheaper and I had just never made it out there.  Until this past Saturday evening, that is, when we found […]



Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea in Pasadena – One of Joel McHale’s Favorite Hangouts

Aug 8th, 2011 | By | Category: This and That

As I have mentioned quite a few times before on my blog, this stalker absolutely loves herself some Joel McHale.  So when I saw that the cutie The Soup host/Community star had been interviewed about some of his favorite SoCal haunts in the August 2011 “The Best of LA” issue of Los Angeles Magazine, I just about died of excitement!   And, being that this stalker also absolutely loves herself some coffee, when I discovered that the actor frequents a java spot right near where I […]



The Yellow Vase Café from “90210”

May 26th, 2011 | By | Category: 90210 & Beverly Hills, 90210 Filming Locations

One location that I have been on the lookout for for over a year now is the yellow-hued coffee shop where Navid Shirazi (aka Michael Steger) ran into ex-girlfriend Adrianna Tate-Duncan (aka Jessica Lowndes) in the Season 2 episode of fave show 90210 titled “Another Another Chance”.  I spent far more hours searching for this location than I really care to admit, but, for whatever reason, just could not seem to find it.  Then last month, while scanning through the Season 2 episode of the […]



Elliott Bay Cafe – The Inspiration for Cafe Nervosa on “Frasier”

Oct 14th, 2010 | By | Category: TV Locations

Another location that I stalked while visiting the Pacific Northwest this past May was Elliott Bay Cafe – the Seattle-area coffee shop that was the inspiration for Cafe Nervosa on the hit television series Frasier.  I first learned about this location from my good friend Nat, who in turn learned about it a few years earlier while taking Bill Speidel’s “World Famous” Underground Tour of Seattle’s historic Pioneer Square District during a vacation in Washington State.  And even though I was never a huge fan […]
