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.

Nice place, food uneven

We reserved a table for a large family group. The ambiance was pleasant and the staff attentive. Most of the group were quite pleased with their food, but 3 of us chose the pasta with crab, garlic and herbs. There was no detectable garlic or herbs, and the blue crab was fishy. My daughter had... read more

I brought an out of town guest here and, light eater though they were, Green Street was able to please even a picky palate. A busy lunch rush did not detract from service and the atmosphere never became so loud that it affected our conversation. I will always consider this one of the best places to host a person new...

The house wines are $5 and a limited menu of appetizers are also $5. This is a great bargain. The food here is delicious and appetizer portions are generous but not too much.

When my husband and I can't decide what kind of food we feel like eating, we end up at Green Street. Their food is consistently good, a wide selection, generous in quantity, good service, comfortable ambience, and we are always satisfied. We've brought many friends and relatives to the restaurant, and often order the Dianne Salad with their wonderful zucchini... More

The Diana salad is justifiably famous--it's very fresh and tasty. It was HUGE, however. The smaller portion would be enough for most people. Our sandwich girl really liked her avocado and chicken sandwich (guacho), and loved the iced tea. Good, bustling place for lunch if you're in Pasadena.

My boyfriend and his family and I came here for Easter Brunch. The food was good but the service was horrible. We were there for about 20 minutes before someone came and asked us if we wanted coffee. We had a total of 3 waitress, so we never knew who was helping us. I think it was busy because of... More

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!
