Amara Chocolate & Coffee (Pasadena, CA)

I got my chocolate fix on at Amara. It’s a cute little coffee shop in Oldtown Pasadena.

They’re famous for their coffee, hot chocolate, and churros.

This is the 12 piece cinnamon sugar churros with two dipping sauces. My sister and I got the milk chocolate and dark chocolate.

This is part of their breakfast menu. I think it’s called a arepa? Something like that. It had eggs, bacon, and smoked gouda. I didn’t like the taste of the outside because it was flavorless. All I could taste was the bacon. The eggs weren’t seasoned very well and the smoked gouda had no distinct taste. I LOVE smoked gouda so I’m not sure what kind of cheese was used.

This is called the Raymond. It’s venezuelan hot chocolate with salted caramel marshmallows. It was SO GOOD! šŸ™‚ It’s definitely rich so I was glad I got the small. It’s not too sweet just very rich.

My sister ordered spicy Aztec coffee. The cup and plate are so adorable! I might have to get a set of these!

Cinnamon sugar churro dipped in dark chocolate. These aren’t like the churros you buy at the fair. These are very crispy on the outside and are best when warm.

I carved a pumpkin! šŸ™‚ I’ll have more pictures soon. It was my first pumpkin carving and I think overall it went very well. Thanks for reading!

Fail Sweetly,
