This is the neighborhood hangout every neighborhood needs. You'll always see pairs and groups of people lingering for a long time over coffee or ice cream. Super dog friendly. The interior is often occupied by folks with laptops working away, especially upstairs. Very picturesque location right next to the RR tracks. Probably not worth a trip from a long distance... More

This is one of my favorite places in So. Pasadena, and I've been coming here for years. It's in the renovated portion of Mission St., right next to the railroad tracks.
