Great coffee, a cute cafe and a gorgeous boutique in Sierra Madre

I stand corrected. Before I left for my trip, I was joking about having to consume vast amounts of caffeine because it's pretty hard to find good Espresso coffee in the US.

However my friend Linda took me to a very cute little coffee shop in Sierra Madre called Bean Town. Ben (pictured below) sure knows how to make a great latte. They roast their own beans and also have a great array of cakes, slices and other temptations.
Linda, Joel and me (it's Linda's iced drink, not mine, I was sticking to the coffee!)
...even good coffee art
The cafe has a lovely ambiance - little tables or more relaxed seating on couches as well as the tables outside. One morning I went and there was a group of people sitting around knitting, drinking coffee and chatting. So friendly.

I loved this sign in the window.

Sierra Madre has such a nice little village atmosphere (no big chain stores)

Across the road from Bean Town is a gorgeous clothes boutique, Angels Everywear, owned by a lovely woman, Angel. This shop is a MUST if you are in the area. Angel has divine stuff and it's reasonably priced. I was able to buy some lovely end of season stuff as we are heading into summer in Australia.


Angel also has a facebook page so go and "like" her.


  1. What a beautiful boutique! Sounds like quite a holiday. I'm jealous. But I'm really enjoying reading what you've been up to and all the places you've seen :)

  2. First let me first reveal to you that I have a restricted perspective on what truly establishes a boutique lodging. I believe that the expression "Boutique" when used to depict an inn is regularly twisted. visit this page
