Also, I had a terrible experience at the Zeli Coffee Bar at Vroman's Books on Colorado Blvd...not recommended!
See my post here:
If you’re in the neighborhood of Raymond and California Avenues here in Pasadena, check out Jones Coffee Roasters. They roast their own over there, and when they do, the incredible aroma settles over a five-block radius. You almost don’t even need to order an espresso to get the full effect but you’ll be glad you did, especially now that a few of the other local standbys seem to be off their game lately.
Their cappucinos are amazing and beautifully poured!
