Fun setting and I may try again, because it is so old school, but I won't get chai. Real chai, of course is loose strained Indian spiced tea, steeped slowly to almost scalding with sugar or honey, and milk or cream added after tea is...More

Mexican flair embraces you in this tiny, special coffee shop. The Mexican hot chocolate is my favorite but you can always count on good cup of coffee here. It might be a small place but all the usuals (cappuccinos, americanos, espressos, teas) can be found,...More

A convenient little coffee cafe near the playhouse. Very trendy Latin ambience with several themed drinks I love the Mexican hot chocolate. It has a cozy feel, with upstairs seating to quiet studying. Sorry to report, no wi-fi!

Zona Rosa is a small place about half a block off Colorado Blvd near CalTech. There is a rather small amount of seating both inside and on the sidewalk. It's not a place like Starbucks where you might hang out for a couple of hours...More
