Highly popular, and for good reason

I come here several times a year with my wife and another couple. We always get a salad, each couple sharing one. Fresh zucchini bread comes along with it. The service last night was a bit slow and water was scarce.

Glad we found this place. Stayed at the Sheraton on Cordova St. Decent walk to restaurant. Kind of tucked on a back street. Customer service was the type that defines customer service. Waiter grabbed phone charger for my sister in law and called for taxi after breakfast. They serve a zucchini bread that is amazing, free. Bloody Mary's spicy and... More

Everything on the menu sounded wonderful, but I had to get my fill of Diane Salad while in Pasadena recently. Green Street continues to be a success in offering what the customer loves in a restaurant - great evolving menu, outdoor dining, wonderful service. A must for a casual breakfast or lunch.

My wife and I come here about 2-3 times a year. Usually lunch or brunch, never dinner. Today was my first breakfast and what a delightful breakfast it was. Pleasant atmosphere, good service and decant food - perfect settings for an early business meeting. If you are in Pasadena, don't miss this place - you'll like it.

Try the Diane's salad, a shredded chicken salad with delicious dressing. There is always a house baked sweet bread as an alternative to standard rolls, sometimes zucchini, or banana. Delicious. Really good vegetarian alternatives, especially the grilled vegetables with jerk sauce. Too much jerk sauce will make the top of your head explode, but your mouth will be happy happy... More

What an odd evening this turned out to be. Had friends visiting from out of town and thought Green Street Tavern would be a nice place to relax and welcome them to Pasadena. We made a reservation for 8:15 and when we arrived on time were told we had to wait twenty minutes for our table. Okay? When we did... More

We're long time fans of this restaurant and have made it our 'go to' restaurant anytime we're in town. This evening's meal was no exception to the quality, fresh and flavorful food; extensive menu and personable, attentive service we have ALWAYS received. Highly recommend this dining experience - the Diane salad and zucchini bread are our favorites!!!

Everything here is good...even the zucchini bread (you can buy a loaf on the way out the door) The salad keeps us coming but the food tastes just like mom was working in the kitchen-don't know how they do it! Next time you're in Pasadena give them a try, you'll love it!
