The folks working there could be kinder and less aloof. The food makes up for it, we also brought home their coffee and preserves. We went several times during our stay in Pasadena.

The place looked inviting so we stopped for lunch on our way to Vegas. The place served good food in a very nice atmosphere.

Great coffee (strong) and bread. Croissant was very white bread, not buttery. Eggs and frittata were excellent, but came with mesclun, which is weird for breakfast.

High quality food, organic and nice to feel the Belgian touch (bread, spéculoos pasta...). A formula that works every where in the world :-) Thanks

Don't expect to get there at 8pm and find it open, because they close at 7!!! Are you kidding? People eat in Old Pasadena, then go looking for desert and coffee. We end up in Urth Cafe down the street.

Details like the very long communal table in the middle of the dining room, furniture that looks purposefully distressed and antiqued, and condiments on the tables like fig jam and hazelnut spread signal you that this is not the typical fast-food coffeeshop. As far as chain operations go, it's certainly a bit more pricey, but also more refined and comfortable.... More
