Hidden away in Old Town Glendora is a coffee shop that will cause you to second guess that trip to Starbucks.

Classic Coffee, at 141 N. Glendora Blvd, has been in business for nine years. And although this coffee shop may look small it packs some bold flavors.

Great tasting coffee and blended drinks along with the homey atmosphere has their customers, including myself, coming back for more.

From their most popular drink, the iced chai latte, to its classic vanilla bean frappe, no taste bud goes unsatisfied.

For those looking to grab that quick health conscious breakfast Classic Coffee provides organic steel cut oatmeal for only one dollar while supplies last. And if you are not one of those people looking out for calories then the chocolate chip scone is an ideal pastry for chocolate lovers.

If you are not an early riser, no worries, I wake up late just as much as the next person and Classic Coffee is where I get my wake up call before heading to school.

So whether you are in the mood for a pastry or a parfait, this coffee shop serves an array of clientele, the majority of whom are students.

Now the small extra cost is something that may cause you to shy away. But don’t fret. For example, a venti mocha light frappucino from Starbucks is $4.25 and the large minnie mocha from Classic Coffee is $4.60. This is the average price difference between all the beverages.

The increase in cost is more than worth it. The taste of the coffee is smoother and has a richness to it that Starbucks lacks.

The atmosphere is extremely family friendly and the customer service is right on point.

Every trip I have made to Classic Coffee there has always been a crowd of people with smiles on their faces. The baristas are friendly and if you don’t know what you are in the mood for they are more than willing to make suggestions.

It doesn’t matter if you are a coffee lover or a tea drinker, Classic Coffee is the perfect place to satisfy any craving.

So take a drive or a short walk to Old Town Glendora and grab yourself a classic cup.
