Lavender & Honey — mmm…

How charming is Lavender & Honey Espresso Bar, located on the corner of Washington Boulevard and Hill Street in North Pasadena? My heart beams at the thought of it.



I had business up North, and looking for a place to grab a latte, it was a welcome site — little did I know how lovely it would be. So bright and welcoming is its interior.

This photo with the stringed lights was taken
at a moment right before the crowd ushered in;
and once it did, the place stayed packed as long I was there.

The latte I ordered kept me wondering:  what were the distinctive, delicious flavors roaming across my tongue? I did not know. But what I can tell you is that the espresso was from a single source Ethiopian bean from Klatch Coffee.IMG_3612



They have loads of made-to-order sandwiches and pastries and sweet things at the counter. So of course I needed a snack too.

Mozzarella, tomato, balsamic vinegar.

A few things I bought from their shelves and countertop of goods.

Unable to resist, I went back another day for yet another latte.
