Spectacular breakfast

This is a hidden gem and not to be missed. My sister discovered this place when it first opened years ago and we have been going back all the time. The brothers who founded and run the cafe are geniuses ... one in the kitchen, one in service. Everything is fresh, tasty, prepared in a timely... read more

The special was a corn tortilla with black bean purée, fried eggs and chile verde. It was fantastic. The California omelet was also good. Excellent service. Highly recommend for breakfast.

The Pasilla Chilis is one of the best dishes in Pasadena. The chicken roue is always consistent and the spice scale of the peppers can sneak up on you because the chilis are fresh and unpredictable. The very best part of the meal is that after you have finished your first chilli you have a second one just waiting to... More

My sister brought me here; they know her well, and I've been here three times on various occasions and had pleasant and delicious encounters each time. You can eat hearty, or you can eat, well, moderately lightly. I stuck to breakfast each time, but the dishes were each well-prepared with great salsa and decent sized (but not Cheesecake-Factory-Sized) portions. I... More

We LOVE Yahaira's Cafe, especially for breakfast. They have the best pancakes and everything else is delicious too. Their tostadas are great and the dinner specials are delicious and very reasonable. We go there sometimes for breakfast and again for dinner!

Location, location, location. Come twice and they'll know your name, and favorite menu items. Great for a cup of hot Mexican chocolate and plate of home made, carmel-y flan before (or after) a play or a movie.

Quaint and casual this place is a gem. The service was friendly and prompt, the food was remarkably good. As a starter we had the shrimp quesadilla which was outstanding. We followed with the poblanos stuffed with chicken adobado and chicken with a roasted garlic and caper sauce over sundried tomato risotto, both were delicious. The only negative was the... More
