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.

Good lunch place

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!

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.
