Main Street's newest coffee house opened its doors on July 23, serving up cappuccinos, iced lattes, frappes, and espressos. Cowa Café — which replaced Roasters Family Coffee on Main and 5th Street — also offers iced teas, smoothies, panini, and desserts.
Owner Benjamin Song decked out the coffee shop in oil paintings, Victorian mirrors, and glass chandeliers for a polished look. The Temple City residents say they are looking forward to serving up refreshments in Alhambra. "We just want to be a place where people can relax and enjoy their drink," Jacqueline Song said.
Open less than a month, Cowa Café has received four 5-star reviews on the rating website Yelp. "The jasmine green tea that I had was great, and the coffee that others were having smelled amazing. Cowa is by far one of the better tea shops in the San Gabriel Valley," wrote David C.
