Altadena (and the border with Pasadena) are booming. There is a new Little Flower location on Lincoln near John Muir High School, which includes a restaurant named Lincoln. It looks quite posh. Pizza of Venice on Fair Oaks is a little slice of Silverlake without the painful drive. I like the health food store and vegan restaurant Happy Days. Also, the Arroyo Food Coop finally opened on Wilson and Villa (not on the border, though). I hope to try the Grist and Toll mill (!) down on Arroyo Parkway (not on the border, but no freeway driving necessary).
