Coffee and plants…two words on nearly every millennial hipster’s hypothetical bingo card. Pasadena’s newly established caffeine corner, Coffee and Plants, offers plenty of Instagrammable opportunities among—you guessed it—coffee and plants.
The locale has gained a following as the region’s first fully plant-based coffee shop, serving up uniquely crafted artisanal blends and delicious vegan baked goods. In addition to coffee classics like pour overs and cold brew, as well as ample espresso-based options like mochas and cappuccinos, patrons may be surprised to discover unique, boldly-hued specialties like The Rose Bowl Latte (made with espresso, beet juice, rose/hibiscus syrup, and garnished with roses) and Blue Lavender Latte (made with lavender syrup, blue pea powder, and milk, garnished with lavender).
For those seeking a savory or sweet treat, opt for one (or all) of Coffee and Plants’ rotating selection of baked goods and pastries, made with wholesome and organic plant-based ingredients, like the savory mushroom and provolone croissant or blueberry poppyseed muffin.
While patrons may come for the drinks, they stay for the “good vibes” reflected in Coffee and Plants’ ethos: to be kind, do good, and feel good.
