I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

New coffee house opens on Main Street

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.

Have you been to Cowa Café?

Cowa Café is located at 521 W. Main St, Alhambra, Calif., 91801, open Monday to Saturday from 9:30 am to 9:30 pm.
