1. The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappuccino Maker
To begin this list, we have The Butcher, The Baker, The Cappucino Maker!

The indoor/outdoor space features an airy dining room with bright yellow banquettes, marble countertops, and a lovely patio with shady olive trees.

2. Dots Cafe
“Rustic California farm to table.”
Next, we have Dots Cafe which was created by Hailey Kwon and Sundeep Vohra. They started as a humble cupcake shop built to bring happiness and joy to their friends in Pasadena. And what came about when a baker and a dreamer teamed up with a creative chef was Dots Cafe! Dots has a menu filled with coffee drinks, lattes and mocktails, farm fresh eggs and toasts to wake up your taste buds, baked goods made from scratch every morning, and a vast lunch menu ready to enjoy. Dots Cafe is located on Colorado Blvd in Pasadena, CA!
3. Alfred Coffee
Many coffee fans on Instagram may have already seen the hashtagged “But first, Coffee” alongside a perfectly composed and Instagrammable coffee shop, well this is what rose Alfred’s Coffee to fame. Alfred’s Coffee first opened in 2013 on the famous Melrose strip and has since expanded to other locations in Silver Lake, Brentwood, and Studio City. Alfred’s menu includes all of your typical espresso drinks, along with hot chocolate, chai lattes, fresh pressed juices, and hot tea. Owner Josh Gad decided to open a second concept known as the Alfred Tea Room as he saw the rising demand for tea, “the spectrum of tea is so large that this opening just made sense.” So, if you want to grab a picture with the “But first, coffee” sign or the “Tea, yes. You, maybe” sign, you can visit at one of their locations in L.A.!
4. Carrera Cafe
Moreover, Carrera Cafe is a charming European style Cafe with fine espresso-based drinks. Carerra is known for their famous latte art which can be created from whatever you want! If you didn’t take enough pictures for your Instagram feed inside the restaurant, you may want to take a look at their famous mural located on the corner of Melrose and Harper in West Hollywood! Use #Hello and take a selfie as well as tag @carreracafe on Instagram for a chance to be featured on their page!
5. Lavender & Honey Espresso Bar
Additionally, owners Charlie and Melanie Porter built the concept of Lavender & Honey from their love for the cafe culture and desire to make a difference in the local community. They drew their inspiration from their experiences as former Baristas, from their travels to many major cafe destinations all over the world, and from the many local artisans whose products exemplify their commitment to quality above all else. And ever since they opened in 2013 their mission has been to provide customers with a unique, boutique coffee experience. Visit Lavender & Honey at their coffee shop in Pasadena, CA!
