LA Weekly's Description

If you’re looking for a piece of nostalgia just outside the most bustling part of the city, check out this library located on East Walnut Street in Pasadena. Designed by the same architects as the Huntington Library, its huge selection of books and beautiful, elegant rooms keep quiet-loving patrons coming back to study, read or just relax. A coffee shop sits just outside, too, in case you spend too much time relaxing … ahem.

    Try the sweet potato fries...awesome

  • Chris A. on 01/20/12

    Almost anywhere on the first floor is fantastic, but the main hall defines the quintessential reading palace with its broad desks, lamps, and dark wood paneling.
