Artisanal Coffee Shop in Old Pasadena

Intelligentsia is located in Old Pasadena, they specialize in single-origin pourover coffee and high quality teas.


The coffee shop is built inside a brick building from the 1800s — tall ceilings, exposed beams, ambient lighting and large windows make for a comfortable and inspiring space. Outdoor seating is also available on Colorado Boulevard.

Free Wifi

Intelligentsia Pasadena offers free wifi, the tables are ideal width for working on a laptop and electric outlets are available throughout the space.


The pastries here are great, we recommend the spam and kimchi croissant and the jalepeno and cheese croissant.

Beer & Wine

Intelligentsia offers a great selection of crafts beers and wines.


Use the rear entrance through Exchange Alley, it is so much more interesting than the main entrance on Colorado Blvd.
