Very creamy with fresh fruits and raisins. However, parking can be a challenge. Small parking lot next to... read more

We went here two times during our stay in Pasadena and we vote this as the number one breakfast place. The selection is broad and the portions large. Most of all, everything was delicious. It's a relatively small place and one day we had to wait for a table, yet only for a short time and totally worth it.

Visited in December with the family. Had the most delicious brunch. Well worth the 20 minute wait for a table. The food was divine and the service exemplary. Highly recommended!

We went here for breakfast when were in town for a college football game. Party of 5 on a sunday morning. Didn't have to wait too long (20 min?) and once we got in, Service was quick. We had a little bit of everything, blueberry pancakes, macadamia nut pancakes, cornflake crusted french toast and pulled pork benedict.

Went for a business breakfast meeting it's a nice place service is a little slow but the French Toast encrusted with corn flakes are amazing! A little expensive for breakfast but pasadena is expensive so it fits.

This place looks nice from the outside and the staff is reasonably friendly, We had lunch here and opted for the daily special: a salad with scallops and shrimps. We spent for two almost 50 USD for a lot of lettuce, 2 strawberries, 2 shrimps and 2 scallops and a little bit of dressing. I almost never write bad reviews... More

Went for breakfast with a friend around 7:30 AM. Think we were the first customers of the day as the place was empty. The restaurant was clean and tidy if a little small. As it was early morning and quite warm we opted to sit outside. Staff were friendly and welcoming and nothing appeared to be too much trouble. I... More

We've eaten here a few times and each has been very good. Especially like their salads - get some dressing to take home!

Although the website says they're open 7 AM to 2:30 PM, they actually close for half an hour from 11 to 11:30 AM for the transition from breakfast to lunch!

Wasn't expecting so much food. The waitress was very attentive and helpful. Always came to check on me and food was hot when it arrived. I would go back for sure
