It all started with Joseph who was born in a barn. Next to a wheat field. Who grew up to mill whole grains, Ferment, And bake bread.   Though inexpertly poetic, the above intro is not entirely true¹, but it’s humorous, and we like funny. And we like good, lovingly made homemade bread. We actually […]

Bittersweet Treats

Bittersweet Treats

Tucked in between a stretch of eateries (that includes an ever-present Starbucks), a block or so east of PCC, and across the side street from Samy’s Camera is Bittersweet Treats. We stumbled upon it about a year ago, looked at the treats presented on the counter and thought, these are different. We introduced ourselves and […]

Art & Coffee “On The Menu” at Europane

Art & Coffee “On The Menu” at Europane

Avi Roth has trademarked the word “coffeegraph,” which is described as “the process of applying coffee grinds and coffee by-products as organic pigment without a binder to solid and porous surfaces by way of staining, layering, and water burning.” Coffeegraph® and other mediums of art are on exhibit at the original Euro Pane just east […]

Euro Pane & Poetry

Euro Pane & Poetry

One of our favorite bakers, Sumi Chang, owner of Euro Pane, is hosting poet Lester Graves Lennon, Sunday, May 19th. He will be reading from his recent book of poetry My Father Was a Poet. Lennon’s first book of poetry was The Upward Curve of the Earth and Heavens (2002). By trade, Mr. Lennon is […]

Flour + Tea = Mmm Mmm Good

Flour + Tea = Mmm Mmm Good

With a location on the corner of Arroyo Parkway and Cordova and parking in a garage at the bottom of an apartment/condo complex, it would seem as though this tea house/bakery/cafè would be at a disadvantage. But, it is not. While we were chatting with Nancy Ou, co-owner with her cousin Johnson Wang of Flour […]

Heirloom Cafe: Sweet & Savory

Heirloom Cafe: Sweet & Savory

It’s easy to miss, tucked around the corner, and especially since Busters so easily catches one’s eye right next to the Metro, as well as Mix ‘n Munch and the new La Monarca Bakery. But right up Meridian Avenue, just north of Mission in South Pasadena is Heirloom Bakery and Cafe. Having lived in South Pasadena […]

Chowder Hound: Pappa Rich

Chowder Hound: Pappa Rich

When I first walked into Pappa Rich, I assumed it was a rip-off of Beard Papa, but this Korean import (133 stores under the name “Pappa Roti” in South Korea and counting) is completely different. Its large, soft, sienna-brown buns are brushed with a barely sweet mocha coating that soaks into the golden dough and […]

Great Harvest Bread Co.

Great Harvest Bread Co.

Just when you think South Pasadena couldn’t possibly support another bakery, along comes Great Harvest to prove you wrong. A franchise operation opened by a local couple, the bakery is a little too franchise-perky, but what they do, they do well. The heart of the operation are the breads, notably the honey whole wheat and […]

Holiday Pies

Holiday Pies

Pie season is nigh, and sure, we all know we can turn to Marie Callender’s if need be. But at Hometown Pasadena, we believe it’s always better to support a local business instead of a national chain, and besides, we have a remarkable array of pie resources. Here are our favorites, including a bake-it-yourself option. […]
