We went there on a Sunday for brunch. Made reservation on open table. The restaurant was crowded with parking above it. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Service was fast. I had their quinoa with smoke salmon & poached eggs. It was so so good. Remember to try their zucchini bread instead of toast. You will get full before your... More

We arrived late and all ordered a salad called Diane. Everyone needs to know about Diane; it is absolutely delicious. No one seemed to mind that our party arrived and stayed late; they were totally patient and agreeable.

As others have noted, the Dianne Salad and Zucchini Bread are the highlights of our visits to this restaurant. We come here as part of the Pasadena Playhouse evening, and while we have tried other things on the menu, we come back to this salad. The dinner size is more than a mere mortal can eat, so I would suggest... More

Met some friends here as a half way point from where we all live, and enjoyed our Sunday brunch. They have a very extensive menu with choices for both breakfast and lunch. The pancake combo with two pancakes, two eggs, bacon, orange juice, and coffee that I had for $10.95 was a real bargain. Although I've had better pancakes, my... More

We frequent Green Street for breakfast 3 to 4 times a month. The large outside space faces a narrow lane so it is a perfect place to enjoy a morning respite. My husband likes the oatmeal and various omelettes. I tend to go for smaller options. They have a good breakfast taco as well as a good one egg offering... More

My beef with this place is that I ordered a salad with arugula and it had spinach instead. It might not have been such a deal breaker, but it wasn't very fresh. When I mentioned to the waitress, Keri S, that the salad had spinach not arugula, she went back and "asked" the chef who she said insisted it was... More

Was visiting a colleague in the area who suggested this place for lunch. It is on a very small "Lane" street, underneath a parking structure so, being unfamiliar with the area it was a bit hard to find. Free parking was a bit of a challenge to find and even though they are located under a parking structure they do... More

Nice people, good service, food was pretty average but the killer is the dang noise. Had to shout our order to wait staff and gave up trying to have any type of conversation. When will restaurants ever learn . . .

Been for dinner a couple of times, it was very good. But try breakfast, it's the best. Famous for their zucchini bread. It's amazing! All you really need and a cup of coffee and you're good to go!
