Large trees meet on Altadena Street

Altadena is also known for its rich history. The area was developed by the Woodbury brothers in the 1880s and was quickly sold to socialites who were looking for a piece of California with clean air and access to nature. The Woodbury brothers also planted trees and orchards, which, along with the fresh mountain air, attracted millionaires such as Andrew McNally and William Kellogg. Today, the area is still known for its beautiful landscapes and historic homes.

The community of Altadena is a mix of old and new. Along the commercial drag of Lake Avenue, you'll find Fox’s Restaurant, a diner and landmark that has been in operation for over 60 years, as well as several coffee shops including a recent addition of Cafe De Leche. The area is also home to Bulgarini Gelato, which has received rave reviews from both The Los Angeles Times and L.A. Weekly.

Blue building with white umbrellas at Café De Leche

Altadena is a diverse and eclectic place, with a strong community of people who have been priced out of metro Los Angeles. Despite its close proximity to the city, the community has managed to avoid rapid gentrification, thanks in part to its geography and location. This is what makes Altadena so special - it is a hidden gem that offers the best of both worlds - the peace and tranquility of the countryside and the convenience of the city.
