Buster's is the kind of place that makes you feel like you on the set of a TV show. Friendly staff always serves your coffee as if they now your name. It's always nice to sit outside and read the paper.

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. A Victorian era building with two stories and outdoor patio area, it's a great place to come for ice cream, desserts, coffee and tea. They also have a small menu of salads and sandwiches.

They have free wi-fi for customers during the weekdays, not on the weekends (they say it's because they want people to come and socialize and not stare at computers on the weekends. works for me!) The tables upstairs are where the laptop people go, and downstairs and outside everyone sits around and chats.

They make their own desserts, and they are delicious! The key lime pie, which comes in it's own little glass deep dish with real whip cream, is absolutely the best I've ever had! The pastries, cookies, cakes, it's all wonderful! And the ice cream and milk shakes, terrific!

The owners and staff are very nice, the people who frequent Buster's are friendly and it's a darling little town. The only reason I give it 4 stars is because the coffee and coffee drinks have never quite been what they could be.

Hours:
Mon-Wed 6:30 am - 7 pm
Thu-Fri 6:30 am - 8 pm
Sat-Sun 7 am - 8 pm

All in all, this is a great little coffee/dessert house. Stop by and give it a try, you'll be glad you did!

I used to like Buster's a lot but their hours got weird and sometimes I'd find it closed. Seating indoors is claustrophobic. But they do all those ice cream-coffee combinations I love.
