Absurd pricing!!! I ordered a regular coffee/black. I'm not a fancy customer. I expected Starbucks prices, 2 bucks or so...It was 5! and, though it just tasted so-so...they make a big production number in creating it. A pain in the ass, in my opinion... One thing is for certain. The high prices keep out the riff-raff, and, for that I was grateful. Plus there is lots of seating. Lots!!! So, I'll never go again unless someone else is paying, but, as you can see, it has it's pluses.

Four star average???!?! Must be kidding. Service akin to your worst DMV experience. Bad coffee and the food is even worse. Crazy, crazy pricing. To top it off, no outlets in the place, so you can't sip your coffee while working unless you come in charged up. Do yourself a huge favor and go to any other shop in CA, or buy a Mr. Coffee for a higher quality brew, and no DMV service!

Love this spot starting from the decor. Love the industrial dark look in here with the metal piping and the church pew seating with the wood stool bars. Love the fact that they serve coffee and beer. Really it's whatever floats your boat. Could come here for a bite or even just to get work done. They have pastries that are brought in by a local bakery and Intelligentsia coffee is pretty damn good, too. And I'm not going to lie - I've thought about snagging one of their beakers 'cause I love that beaker water pitcher idea (obviously I haven't done it - don't start with the judgement finger pointing and rolling eyes).

Best tasting coffee ANYWHERE! I get a latte and I never need to add sweetener because it's just SO flavorful and naturally sweet that it's perfect just the way it is. Not many options for variety. Most beverages are based solely on their coffee. They don't do "a little of a lot", they do "a lot with a little". The atmosphere is beautiful! However, there are no outlets. But get your Joe, work or relax for an hour (or so) and then be on your way. You come for the flavor and quality of the coffee, not for the co-work space. Not much diversity in options. So much deliciousness in every sip. Higher standards. Less broad.

The coffee was good , but the service was really bad , being in Old Pasadena you expect that they have better attitudes, we were there on on Friday July 3 ,2015 at 8 pm , with 4 other couples talking and having fun , the waiter that had an attitude and came and told us to keep it down we were too loud , if I known that that was a library I would have not take my friends there. The worst part was there were two other couples came in and they were laughing loud like us but he never once go and told them anything .

Wow! The coffee reminds me of the flavor i experienced of the freshly brewed cups during my days in central America. So organic, so flavour full. No sweetener, just coffee my laptop and a bliss I've experienced in Pasadena.
