I have often dined here and never been disappointed. The bacon wrapped dates are delicious. Their sangria is very refreshing and tasty, The service is top notch and the food is fresh and appealing. Great stop for happy hour. The outdoor patio is very relaxing for a casual dinner.

Our group of six had brunch here on a Saturday at the opening time, 10 am. Immediately after sitting down, I noticed a strong draft from the ceiling fan directly above my head. It was a warm day, so all the fans were going strong. No one else mentioned it, so I decided it was not so uncomfortable that I... More

A beautiful day required we dine on the patio. Sat down to excellent cocktails, ordered the nachos and entre. We should have waited on the main dish, as the nachos could have fed an army! Very tasty, but left us with little appetite for the main course. We had arrived early to a quiet location--and were glad to be leaving... More

This is a wonderful restaurant adjacent to the Del Mar Gold Line stop in Pasadena. Recently, my office moved close and my wife commutes to her job by train so this has become our once-a-week date night. I can highly recommend any of their Ahi choices, the Tuna tartare appetizer, the Ahi Salad, or the Ahi Tacos are amazing. Everything... More

The cocktails were fabulous. The bartender uses fresh herbs and fruits in the pomegranate mojito and sangria I tried and I was hopeful that the dinner would be just as great. Alas, the plates took forever to come out and two of the four were not hot! The burger was really good but the bass was overcooked, and rotisserie chicken... More

This is great little place to grab lunch with high end tacos (filet, short rib, and more) paired with a Kale salad side, leaving you feel like you are being bad while eating healthy. Typically we grab a table in the bar area which has quicker seating and little less noisy. There is valet or garage parking or if you... More

The atmosphere is great, historic building too, good service, but the food is always average to me...must say the huevos were above average for this place...have had the garden burger, not good and the veggie tacos, very trendy and odd...too much olive oil and food is too heavy for me, I guess on account of the use of oils. Lighter... More

This place has good veggie burgers and great salads. Plus they have free cookies and a lovely $3 kids meal. So it's really easy to convince the kids to go. I usually make them go with me to the Stone tasting room after and I get a couple 4oz beer tasters.

We are a group of 8 who meet for dinner every couple of months, usually in Pasadena. Because this cafe received fairly good reviews, we decided to try it. But it is very very noisy, and definitely not conducive to having any sort of conversation. On the positive side - the deviled eggs are great! On the minus side -... More

A very pleasant casual restaurant (burger, salads, and more) with lots of creative modern California cuisine touches plus excellent wines. Very pleasant service.
