Description: Green Street Restaurant is where Pasadenans go to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and it's been a Pasadena tradition since 1979. It is centrally located just off South Lake Avenue and is within walking distance of hotels, the convention center, the Pasadena Playhouse and popular shopping areas. Green Street has an eclectic menu featuring savory salads (the ever popular and addicting Dianne Salad is ordered over 2,000 times per week), tasty meats, fresh fish and creative sandwiches served on wonderful breads. Guests enjoy a full bar and interesting wines by the glass on a beautiful patio or in the airy interior. Take-out and full catering services are also available.

We recently visited this restaurant, based on the great reviews. We were looking for breakfast/brunch, so I called and they said they served brunch until 4pm (this was on a Sunday). When we arrived, we were seated promptly, but given menus for lunch, not brunch. At that point we just ordered from the lunch menu. The waiter was extremely nice... More

Popular place with good, tasty food. Casual but kind of fashionable. My friend has to come here every time she visits Pasadena. I am debating between average and very good as a rating. It is pretty and the outside dining is nice. Hard to find parking if you don't want to pay. There is a lot right behind the restaurant... More

This is my third visit to Green Street and they have such great Breakfasts. I Usually have Egg's benedict but this time I had the Pancakes and they were so good. I have to say if you love Eggs Benedict this is the place to get it and who wouldn't love their famous Zucchini Bread. It is the best. If... More

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
