Brentwood Specialty

Specialty neighborhood
Alfred
11908 San Vicente Blvd., Brentwood
Now four locations strong and growing quickly, Alfred is quickly taking over LA's coffee scene, making it a definite favorite for screenwriters and freelancers during the week. We like the Melrose Place location best, which shares its space with an adorably tiny Compartes shop in the back. If you’re feeling indulgent, ask for their famous off-menu Alfred cone—a macchiato served in a chocolate covered ice cream cone that tastes just as good as it sounds. They also have kombucha on tap. There's also a location on Melrose Avenue and in Silver Lake.
Brentwood
Beaming
131 S. Barrington Ave., Brentwood
Beaming is most famous as a smoothie shop (the Rockstar is a goop staff favorite), but their whole-food cleanses are extraordinarily powerful. There are one- and three-day options available, but customers can expand up to as much as a 3-week cleanse for a full-on reboot. Each day includes one of their super-food smoothies, followed by cold pressed juices, shots, and raw soups and salads. Their bride-to-be program gives brides (along with their grooms, bridesmaids, mothers) a clean countdown to the big day. Besides Brentwood, there are locations in Santa Monica and West Hollywood.

Kreation Juicery Brentwood
151 S Barrington Pl., Brentwood
The people behind Kreation Café, a certified green eatery specializing in dishes made from local farmers market produce, have applied the same philosophy to their juice bar. Juices are made with 100% organic fruits and veggies purchased within the same zip code. The result is deliciously fresh juice for whatever you're craving or need (detox, energy, etc.). They also have "juicemobiles" for those who can't make it to one of their brick and mortar locations (Venice, Marina del Rey, North Beverly Hills, Beverly Hills, and the Valley), and cold-pressed juices and cleanses you can order online.
Brentwood
Soupure
13050 San Vicente Blvd., Brentwood
This soup cleanse-centric company has a little kiosk near the Brentwood Country Mart, though most of their business is done via delivery. A day on Soupure includes a combination of veggie soups, really nourishing bone broths, super hydrating alkaline water drinks, and chilled snacks. The way the cleanse is spaced out, you end up drinking or eating something every other hour, so there’s really no opportunity to feel hungry. Plus, instead of slamming a bottle of greens, we actually sat down and savored the food. The chicken bone miso broth was incredibly satisfying, the zucchini basil lunch was surprisingly hearty, and the Superhero nuts and seeds blend, which we had for breakfast, tasted better than most desserts. They have one, three, and five-day options along with a mini three-day cleanse that allows for a solid dinner.
