Go past the flower shops and quinceñera dresses inside Centro Magno (a Boyle Heights mini-mall), and you'll find Picaresca Barra de Coffee at the very back. Picaresca ethically sources its coffee beans from Mexico, Colombia, and Ethiopia and roasts them locally for optimal freshness. You'll find all of the usual coffee drinks on the menu, but the signature is the cafe de olla latte that's sweetened with a housemade syrup made of orange peel, cinnamon, and star anise. There are a handful of tables in the market where you can drink your coffee and eat a chile relleno-stuffed burrito or eggy breakfast sando with smoky-sweet mulato chile jam.
