Found this gem while avoiding Friday afternoon Los Angeles area traffic.Unassuming location, but coffee offerings were amazing. We just had a simple latte and double espresso, but were impressed with the flavors, presentation, and service. Next time, we will be more adventurous. No wait at 3:30 p.m. on Friday afternoon, but sounds like we lucked out. Other reviews describe long... More

This is my favorite location to meet for business in Pasadena, not too crowded, great environment and AMAZING coffee. Make sure you get a drink that allows you to taste the coffee, and the richness of their roasts. Me, personally, I just go for the straight cappuccino and enjoy every sip.

If you are looking for excellent coffee and pastry--and not much else!--then this is the place. The in-house roasted coffee comes in multiple varieties for purchase and they always have two brewed and ready. Espresso drinks are exquisite, constructed by talented baristas. Pastries come from a local baker and are almost on par with the coffee. Roomy, comfortable, with efficient... More

Being upfront, coffee is not my thing, so coffee houses in general do not appeal to me. They have a small menu and other beverages. Large space inside, cozy.

We tend to look for places who serve decent coffees and this place does in the Pasadena area. The place did look unassuming but inside was rustic. It could use with more tables as you have students with their laptops frequenting the place.

I went to Jameson Browns a few weeks ago after my neighbour recommend it to me. The first thing I noticed is friendly and passionate staff. These guys roast their own beans and know their coffee. I ordered a strong decaf latte as I am trying to cut back on caffeine. After one sip of my latte I was sold.... More

Confession: engine needs coffee to get started. And if it's going to be a good start, it needs good coffee. If you are in Pasadena, CA and you'd like to start up, refresh, afternoon pick--me-up or early evening caffeine fix, Jameson Brown Coffee Roasters is the place. Chosen eans are roasted on site in small batches which undoubtedly contributes to... More

This is just a great place. Really friendly staff who know how to roast coffee, make a coffee drink (and make it look attractive) and treat you with respect. Good prices too! I go hear every day I'm am visiting Pasadena.

I was visiting from out of town and found this jewel in the rough. Being from WA state where there is a coffee stand on each corner I can tell you that Jameson stands up there with the best coffee I have tasted. Since I drink only de-caf, I know why bother, but let me tell you, their de-caf blend... More
