EAGLE ROCK, GLENDALE, LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE
— EAGLE ROCK —
Nestled in the northeast corner of Eagle Rock, Found Coffee comes to you courtesy former Cafe Demitasse manager and barista Annie Choi. This is a bright spot, with a Lakers gold La Marzocco machine giving the space a nice pop of color, and colorful mugs and sleeves and dishware (many of the things here are upcycled finds). Lots of seating here -- plus parking! -- and wifi on. Menu includes your specialty coffee shop standards, plus seasonal signature drinks and blended teas from San Francisco's T-We. A terrific place to find yourself next time you need a caffeine fix in the area.

A nice, bright shop at the corner of Broadway and Glendale, Highlight has pourovers and espressos and other fun drinks like Nathan Palmers (lemonade coffee; "trust us," they say) and lattes with butterscotch and orange vanilla.

Regent relocated to Glendale from San Gabriel not too long ago, and if you were a fan of the shop, you'll be happy to know that it's just as good as it was before. Drip coffee is brewed in siphons or pourover cones, and there's plenty of cold brew, nitrogen and otherwise. Matcha fans will not be left wanting, either: you can have a shot of matcha, a matcha macchiato, a matcha cortados ... well, you get the idea.
