As if you needed an excuse to head to Pasadena’s coolest coffee joint, Jones Coffee Roasters, now you have an altruistic reason. On Sunday, May 22, it’s hosting a fundraiser for the PanaKids Biliteracy Program, the brainchild and Chuck and Mireya Jones’ daughter, Alison Jones Kelly. Kelly is a bilingual/multicultural teacher who began her career […]

Coffeehouses for Every Need

Coffeehouses for Every Need

In Pasadena (and neighboring Hometown towns) we are blessed with nearly as many independent coffee houses are there are beans in a pound of Mocha Java. Each establishment has loyal fans, each has at least one thing that makes them special, and all make a great cup of joe (espresso/macchiato/cappuccino). We have listed some of […]

Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse

Flintridge Bookstore and Coffeehouse

It seems like anyone who’d open a large independent bookstore in this Amazon era would have to be insane, and yet Lenora and Peter Wannier appear to be completely sane – and smart, too. They’ve done everything right in the handsome new store they built from scratch: chosen the titles carefully to reflect the interests […]

Flintridge Bookstore’s Grand Opening

Flintridge Bookstore’s Grand Opening

How lucky am I? Yesterday afternoon I walked a fraction of a block to the grand opening of the Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse. Just when I had given up hope that anything would be built on the site of the long-abandoned service station at the top of the street, Peter and Lenora Wannier purchased the property and fought hard to fulfill their dream of creating a first-class independent bookstore.

Intelligentsia Coffee

Intelligentsia Coffee

We stopped into Intelligentsia the other day, a few weeks after its opening, and saw that it is settling very successfully into Old Pasadena life. Things were quiet for the first week or two, but now the word is out, and it appears that every under-30 person in town with an deliberately ragged haircut, a […]

Coffee Action

Pasadena’s coffee people, who are numerous indeed, are abuzz with two new developments. First is last week’s opening of the new Intelligentsia Coffee in Old Town, in the former Wok ‘n Roll space on the north side of Colorado jus west of Raymond. A Chicago native, Intelligentsia first settled in Silver Lake, where it instantly […]

Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters

Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters

We pride ourselves on our nose for good coffee, so it was distressing to discover that Jameson Brown has been lurking right in front of us for three years now. Well, not right in front — the location on Allen at Locust, just south of the 210, is not exactly on the beaten path, so […]

Jones Coffee Company

Jones Coffee Company

A globe-hopping selection of coffee (including organic choices) is sold by kindly people in a warehouse space filled with giant roasters, an espresso bar and a funky collection of tables and chairs. The prices are more than fair (a cup of brewed coffee is just 99 cents), and if you order five pounds or more […]

The Novel Café

The Novel Café

I love that everyone has an opinion about coffeehouses. It seems to always be a way to get people riled up. In my recent post on coffeehouses, a commenter pointed in the direction of the Novel Café, a new joint on Colorado near PCC. My boss said there’s a branch in Venice that’s delightful, so […]
