I went to Zona Rosa in Pasadena’s Playhouse District for the first time and it was LOVE, ya’ll. This is my new cafe crush!
It’s papered with beautiful latin and afro-latin art including some gorgeous dia de los muertos pieces. Jazz fills its two stories just above background level.
Coffeehouse music and art always seems muted to me–not at Zona Rosa’s! The intoxicating coffee smell wafts through the vibrant atmosphere in the most pleasant fucking manner!
Ooh! PLUS: NO WiFi!! So Zona Rosa’s is a marvelous spot to unplug, and zone in. I worked well on the cozy, second floor with its cooky chairs and couches. You would too.
Mmmm…and my dark chocolate cappuccino with half almond milk–half coconut milk was rich and creamy and served in the cutest clear mug. I’m pissed I forgot to take its picture…too busy devouring it, I guess. 😉
