Perfect for this town

Great breakfast, great sandwiches, please open again for dinner during the summer. Heirloom is just that...an heirloom to this small town. Saturday's are for a walk up to heirloom to meet friends and have a good breakfast.

I love that this is a mom and pop one-off kind of place. The baked goods are amazing and they serve a mean bowl of oatmeal. It gets crowded so you stand in line to order but the reward is a low-key patio experience in one of America's great small towns. BTW, it is right across the street from the... More

Good coffee for sure, but unlike any other coffeeshop, the menu here goes beyond sugar-and-butter pastries and includes hearty (and healthy) breakfast/brunch options like breakfast burritos, oatmeal (with the fixin's), and quiche of the day (one with meat, and one vegetarian option). A great refresh stop in the heart of South Pasadena's commercial strip.

The food is delicious. They have wonderful soups, salads and sandwiches. Breakfast is wonderful here. So many great baked goods. And a real neighborhood feel. I go all the time.

I have had the pleasure of eating at Heirlooom Bakery on several occasions, both for breakfast and lunch. While a local spot in South Pasadena, it is steps away from the Metro Gold Line which serves downtown Los Angeles. South Pasadena is a quaint small town with nice shops and plenty of places to eat. The South Pasadena Gold Line... More

This is a great place for egg dishes, sandwiches and salads near the South Pasadena train station. But on weekends the kitchen simply could not handle the crowd. I have eaten there a number of times, and on my most recent visit I had a very simple order of coffee, egg, and bacon for breakfast. I picked up the coffee... More

Great sandwiches and salads made with homemade breads. Yesterday had turkey with brie, grilled on pumpkin seed bread. I also like their quinoa and baby kale salad. This is not at all like your average deli. This is an order and seat yourself place. Sometimes they can't keep up with getting the tables cleaned fast enough but I don't mind... More

You walk through line and order, get a number and they deliver to your table. Lots of traffic, sometimes a little overwhelming but the food is great.

Tucked into a building a bit, this bakery/coffee shop offers great pastries and generous omelets to defeat any diet. We ate here on three different occasions. Staff will chat with you and so will other customers. We liked being here a lot.
