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 stopped here by chance for lunch while driving from Palm Springs to Santa Barbara, and what a find! There's a wide choice on the menu and it was all fresh and delicious, with really generous portions and excellent service. Clearly a popular local place with a relaxed but lively atmosphere, and I loved the blue walls! If I lived... More

Had a business lunch and three of us split a few items. One was a large chopped salad that was plenty for the entire meal. They talked us in to three other items that ended up getting thrown away due to the giant volume of food. One of us ordered a glass of wine and was discouraged to do so... More

Green Street is a consistent Pasadena casual resource for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We prefer breakfast. The new menu offers a wide range of choices to meet the taste preferences of many (potato tacos, avocado and bacon omelet, bacon and eggs, 3 different Benedicts as well as pancakes and the famous Zucchini Bread. The Diane salad is a city favorite:... More

Diane salad a must, but put dressing on the side so you can take home the leftovers. Favorite sandwich -Stephens with house red potatoes. The coffee is strong and satisfying.Ask for zucchini bread toasted, plus take a loaf home or give as a gift. Miss their promotions and news letter.

Nicely appointed, good service, good food. Prices are pretty reasonable though not bargain basement. The signature dish is the massive Diane Salad, which is an understated variant of Chinese chicken salad. However, everything we've tried over the years has been good.

This restaurant has been in Pasadena for many years and has always been popular with the locals. It is a prime lunch spot and can get busy so there can sometimes be a wait. The salads are excellent and the breakfast egg entrees are as well. Pleasant ambiance and good service.

When you just want to go somewhere easy and know that it is always consistently good. Everything from the burgers to the salads, good and always fresh. Good drinks also!

Went here for dinner with some business colleagues. We all had a great time the service was fast, the food was excellent and a super ambiance. I had a salad which comes in large, medium and a side. I thought - "OK I'll just have the medium, that'll be fine". I just about managed half of it and I was... More

This is the best meal we had in America so far~ Salad is surprisingly tasty with so much chicken and nuts in it, we were almost full after finishing our starter. I ordered Cuba burger and my husband steak for main. Both of us enjoyed it a lot. Very nicely cooked with great side dish. I like their house made... More
