|~~ Good coffee, and good shopping, at Penny for Your Thoughts ~~|
In an exciting turn of events, we had another chance to have coffee this week. This time, the gathering was on her turf, in Pasadena, at Penny for Your Thoughts, a mere ten-minute drive from Sierra Madre. (Although, as we say, we are not territorial around here.)
After I deliberated for awhile (so much to choose from), owner Millie served up a delicious chai tea latte and scone. She was also very gracious when, thinking I was putting money into the tip jar, I instead plopped various forms of currency into a container of milk. (My second-most embarrassing moment ever. Really.)
Penny for Your Thoughts is not just a coffee shop. They have antiques, and gifts, and antiques you can give as gifts. Plus books. And, as if that isn't enough to keep just about anyone happy, there is a very pretty patio in the back with more seating for coffee drinkers, along with more interesting things to peruse and/or buy.
All-in-all, it was yet another beautiful day. The warm, friendly environment of the shop, the warm, friendly people, and the warm drinks and baked goods were delightful. Just what this bred-for-warm-weather girl needed on a cold, January morning.
