Great place to gather with local folks in Altadena/Pasadena. You can log onto the internet, or grab a book, or do some work with great coffee and treats.

A pleasant change of pace from the big chain coffee places. It's casual and has a neighborhood feel. Plus--the coffee is excellent!

The Coffee Gallery has world class performers in an intimate setting. Dine indoors or out, enjoy the art or shut yourself in with wi-fi. This is hometown living with big city benefits!

The legendary Bob Stane, he of the "Fork in The Road' fame, hosts nightly entertainment from his 49 seat showroom. Another Altadena secret experience that is habit forming.

Not a huge selection. What we had was excellent, menu included pannanis, chillis and soup. Selection of baked desserts. Venue for music. The music venue and the coffee shop are under separate management. Reasonable prices. Parking was easy to find on the street.

They usually have Hawaiian music with occasional top rated performers. Kimo West winner of the Na Hoku Hanoihano award, which is the Hawaiian version of Grammys. Great mellow slack key and Hawaiian sounds.

Comfy chairs, cool barrista looks like a older surfer. Art on the walls, music in the back. Reminds me of chill places in Santa Cruz. Nice cappuccino.

A through-back to my 'hippy' days in San Francisco, this place is low-key, a community hangout, with good coffees and desserts. Check out the theatre schedule for evening entertainment
