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.

Favorite place with the best coffee

I have been coming here since the early 80"s. They have had better service in the past but the food is still delicious. The Diane salad is a must along with my favorite the Stephan sandwich and Toasted zucchini bread. The coffee is nice and strong.

I went back to this restaurant after a long vacation trip. Nice place but too crowded for my taste. Food is very good. Portions are big! Split it! The zucchini bread is tasty, tasty, tasty! I will be back!

This is among the most established restaurants in Pasadena, a classic - great food, great staff. Inside and patio dining. Aside from the great food, this restaurant is known as a "power-lunch" restaurant - with top businessmen and politicians as regulars. Every time I go I have an enjoyable experience. Top top choice.

This is a nice, if unremarkable, neighborhood restaurant that has something for everyone. It is always packed for lunch with local business leaders, moms and kids, ladies who lunch, and anyone else with a hankering for their famous and delicious zucchini bread. If you don't mind a wait, the extensive menu should meet your party's needs and the service is... More

This is my first trio to Green Street Restaurant but I have heard about it from many people who rave about the food. Now I see why. We stopped in for lunch and I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful decor. Although this establishment has been around Pasadena for many years, it was not tired and dark as I had... More

I chose this restaurant for a Sunday dinner based on the other reviews. We were expecting something much better than what they offered. I had the Chicken Pesto which was overcooked and dry. My boyfriend had the glazed pork chop, which was better than my chicken, but just average. Everyone at the restaurant is very friendly and professional, but sorry,... More

This was walking distance to our hotel. Cozy ambience. Interesting menu. Everything we ordered was 100% delicious. Great dessert choice -- white chocolate bread pudding.
