Blame it on those CalTech students cramming for their STEM final, but finding a coffee shop in Pasadena that has both ample seating and usable WiFi (not to mention great coffee) is surprisingly tricky. We usually make a beeline to Rosebud, a spacious coffee shop on Colorado Blvd. with lots of counter seats and tables where you can bust out the laptop. You’ll also be supporting a good cause—as part of its mission, the shop employs unhoused and at-risk youth transitioning out of the foster system.
