We stopped in the Green Street Restaurant for breakfast after hearing amazing things about it. We started ordering the famous zucchini bread and Oh My God, you were not kidding! It was amazing, so much so that we decided to buy a loaf on the spot! I had the eggs benedic with the southwestern hollandaise, it was to die for,... More

I generally go to Pasadena several times during the year to visit my son. This is my must go to breakfast place with him. Great variety. I just tried the spinach egg white omelet and it was delicious. Zucchini bread is always the best.

The Manager professionally and seamlessly squeezed our family of 6 in for Father's Day Brunch when there was a mix up in reservations. The service was wonderful the food was delicious and the atmosphere delightful at one of our favorite tables on the patio. We like the setting,the friendly service and delicious food--consistently wonderful! food.

I stopped by the William-Sonoma store on Lake and realised this restaurant was a "save". Thinking it might be a vegetarian restaurant, I was looking forward to a vegan meal (not a vegetarian). I was pleasantly surprised. I waited quite a while for my server to appear but once she was aware of my presence, she was pleasant, attentive without... More

Green Street restaurant is in downtown Pasadena just off South Lake Avenue. They are well known for their "Diane Salad" and zucchini bread. But almost everything on their menu is excellent. They have a lovely patio for outdoor dining; service is top-notch; we recommend it for business lunches, families, and gatherings of friends.

I have visited Green Street many times, for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Every time I am excited to try new items on their various menus. Their breakfast menu is amazing with the traditional Breakfast dishes such as Eggs Benedict, French Toast & Pancakes, plus non-traditional items such as a Breakfast Quesadilla, BBQ Chicken Hash and Potato Tacos. All were... More

I return time and time again for the signature Diane salad, a shredded iceberg version of the Chinese chicken salad. Paired with the delicious zucchini bread and an ice tea, it is the perfect lunch between shopping errands or business meetings. Although I've focused on this salad, the menu has many offerings for both lunch and dinner as well as... More

As a busy working professional in LA I unfortunately eat lunch in the car on most days. Today I called in a yummy Cornucopia salad from green street and ate it to my delight! Not to mention I have zucchini bread for my evening tea👍

Three of us shared two generous lunch items and took food home. Impressive attention to detail, including arriving at our table and finding a size-appropriate chair waiting for me, a large person who does not do well with narrow chairs with arms. Outdoor seating with relaxing plant borders. Parking was an issue; would have appreciated valet parking.

My husband and I live in Pasadena and have noted Green Street many times, always saying "we should go there..". We finally did last week. Had a fantastic night out. Excellent service - food was delicious (four words - goat...cheese...mashed potatoes). Our waiter was great and recommended some really nice wine. We loved this restaurant because it's tucked away on... More
