Morf, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, meets Josephina, played by Zawe Ashton at the Colburn Cafe.  While the address is on S Grand Ave, it’s not visible from that street.  It’s actually located directly behind another location in the film; the “LAMA” museum, covered later in this article.  There are walkways on either side of the building from S Grand Ave to access this area.
