In your neighbourhood what places, that are part of your daily life, would you recommend as worth a visit?
We moved to Altadena last year and really love it here. I think the highlight is how close we are to the trails and canyons of the San Gabriel Mountains, which we can walk to from our house. In our neighbourhood, we’re right off Lincoln, which has Homestate (breakfast tacos) and Semolina, who make the best pasta and also just started putting out sandwiches 11-2 Thursday through to Saturday. Our favourite nursery and garden shop, Plant Material, is close by, which specializes in native, pollinator friendly and drought-tolerant plants. Amara Kitchen is our favourite brunch spot (and they proudly serve Canyon Coffee!). Side Pie is one of our favourites spots for pizza and wine. And Altadena Beverage is our go-to for amazing wine and other pantry goods.
We also have really been enjoying our proximity to Pasadena, where we regularly visit Lacy Park and the Huntington Library, Art Museum and Botanical Gardens with Sonny. And the Norton Simon Museum is also a gem that’s close by.
