Little Flower Candy Company
1422 Colorado Blvd

In the former Bees Knees Bakery location, on the stretch of Colorado Blvd that connects Eagle Rock to Pasadena, the Little Flower Candy Company has finally found a retail location.

I've been seeing the Little Flower Candy marshmallows in different locations over the years.

While I'm not a huge fan of marshmallow in general, I was intrigued by these and have sampled them before. For me personally, I can only eat half of one piece but from all the marshmallows I've tasted in my lifetime, these are among the best. I can see why Christine (the candy maker) has a following. It's lucky for Eagle Rock that she was able to find a space close by.

Compared to the former Bees Knees, the new space design is more open and friendly to customers. And, being lame person that I am, I finally discovered that there is a parking lot in the back of the building!

They also have these chocolate bead/pearl/caviar thingies that are basically chocalate covered biscuit balls. A bead-shaped Pocky-like thing, if you will. Ask for a sample - they're great and just imagine them on ice cream or maybe you are more into Pinkberry.

Before walking in initially, I was just expecting assortments of candies but they are doing some excellent pastries, croissants, scones, muffins, and they have good coffee. Perfect spot to stop by if you are jogging/walking/biking in the area.

They also do lunch too! They have soup, salads, and sandwiches. The pic is their rare roast beef sandwich.

I overheard Christine say that in the summer, she's thinking to have a deck in the rear of the space for a patio. That would be excellent!! I know I'll be coming by for sure. And oh.. from my understanding, there is wifi as well. I think I may have found my 2008 summer hangout....

    I stopped by on Saturday for lunch. A little off the beaten path but still a great location. Very good coffee and nice service.

    Get your self down to eat!!!
    I've always loved Little Flower Candy caramels. Even when I moved from L.A., I'd stock up so I could have my fix.
    Now, I get to eat scrumptious pastries and drink real coffee! The staff is friendly, the space is homey and the pace is relaxed. What more could anyone want?

    Couldn't agree more with the comments. Just thinking about Little Flower Candy Co is making me hungry. May have to stop by later today!
