Description: Green Street Restaurant is where Pasadenans go to enjoy breakfast, lunch...
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.

Salad- Yum!

They have the best salads! I love the Diane Salad and it is HUGE! It can be easily shared with a friend. They have a great variety of dishes and everything is very tasty.

I'd had breakfast here before and was quite impressed with the quality of the food. This time I stopped in for lunch and had had their famous Dianne Salad with Zucchini Bread. One of the best (and largest) salads I've ever had and the bread is outstanding! Two can share this large salad, but I'd keep the bread for myself!

This is a great place for couples, groups and families. The food is consistently excellent. The service is very attentive and they are willing to listen to special requests. The patio is charming and fun. We eat here several times in any given month.

Green Street is our favorite restaurant and we go there often( most weeks). They keep adding new dishes to keep it interesting but our favorites dishes are still there. Fantastic salads and sandwiches. great staff but we also enjoy breakfast. When our family visits they want to go to GS first. The only sad thing is that we always took... More

You can always get a good meal with good service in a nice atmosphere at Green St. Cafe. We go frequently as it's in our neighborhood. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all great, breakfast on the pation is especially delightful. Try their quinoa and smoked salmon breakfast--divine!

Good food, pleasant surroundings, excellent service all at very reasonableb$. What more could one ask for. We had their chicken and a skirt steak. The chicken was fine and steak was done perfectly as ordered....something pricey steak houses frequently fail to do. They are flexible with changes from their menu. This was ur 2nd visit...we will be back.

I have always loved Pasadena just for it's amazing choices of place to dine. This was my first time at this place and if you are not in the know, it's a little hard to locate. I had a very fine pasta and my friend had the kale salad. The service was great the atmosphere was laid back but busy.... More

Interesting little restaurant with unusual menu full of good things well made. Service was particularly good. Nice sized portions meant you could enjoy the flavors without getting too full.

If the prices weren't so high I would visit more often. Have been coming here since nursing school 1984 for the coffee and Stephen sandwich. I miss the newsletters and special desserts.

I used to come on a regular basis when I lived in Pasadena and I still enjoy returning for a salad when I can. I love the salads and they are huge. My favorite is the Shopper's Lane. It comes with chicken and tortilla strips and an amazing sour cream dressing. I don't see it on the menu anymore and... More
