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.

When you go to Heirloom, expect it to be busy (but well run.) That's 'cause the food is so good. You won't be disappointed with their breakfast or lunch dishes. But what stands out are their baked goods. I haven't had something from Heirloom that was less than excellent. However, my favorites are their apple pie (all apples and crust,... More

I was visiting from out of town and met my friend for Saturday brunch in South Pasadena. She recommended this little place. It did not disappoint! We split an omelet (they even offered to split if for us for no charge) and we shared a banana bread pudding as well. Everything was amazing! It was the perfect breakfast spot! Only... More

This place is a little gem in the small, quaint city of South Pasadena. You can sit outdoors and people watch while you enjoy your best meal of the week. It's conveniently across the street from the mission/meridian gold line metro station. Jump on the train & go shop in Old Towne Pasadena. I've been a customer since their opening... More

We have so many wonderful restaurants in South Pasadena, but this is a lunchtime favorite for many. I'm partial to the Turkey Meatloaf sandwich and my husband is a fan of the Asian salad. You order at the counter and your food is brought to you. This is ideal for groups, so you don't have to haggle over a shared... More

The restaurant is in a cute corner of South Pasadena off Mission Street near the Metro Gold line. You can park in the parking garage next door, so parking is not a problem. They offer quality breakfast (oatmeal, omelettes, breakfast sandwich) and lunch items (sandwiches, salads, chips but no fries) and a few dessert options. I like most of the... More

If you are looking for a low key eatery with great food, indoor and outdoor dining, and reasonable prices, Heirloom Bakery is quite a find. It is an unpretentious bakery and cafeteria style restaurant. The daily specials, as well as their traditional menu, is posted on a large chalk board. My friend and I both ordered the roasted chicken salad... More

Come for breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner. The food is consistently delicious. Try the Cobb salad (1/2 portions enough for 2), the meatloaf sandwich, or the soup of the day. The pastries are amazing. The cupcakes take the cake. There's takeout, too, not to mention the homemade baquettes made fresh daily. Last but not least, delicious cappuccinos and lattes, hot... More

haven't had a meal here yet but the scones are great. I had their red velvet cake served at a local restaurant and it was AMAZING.
