Le Muse Coffee & Wine Bar brings the romantic aura and elegance of Paris to the heart of Pasadena. This quaint, beautifully restored building with a courtyard reminiscent of the sidewalk cafes of Paris, but with a touch of modernity in its decor. The extensive wine list features bottles from France, Spain, Italy and California that are also available to purchase for takeout. Artisan roasted coffee, imported teas from France, beer and nonalcoholic beverages are also available.
For those clamoring for a taste of “The City of Light,” the “smaller bite” food selections are inspired by the simple pleasures of French cuisine, such as delectable pastries, cheese and charcuterie boards, and delicious sandwiches. Enjoy a glass of rosé imported from Provence that pairs perfectly with the heavenly jamón serrano and manchego sandwich served on a traditional baguette.
B-L Mon.-Sat. 101 S. Madison Ave., Pasadena, CA 91101, 626.844.2000 or lemusecoffeeandwine.com.
