Great Spot with Good Food

Heirloom is a little gem in a part of South Pasadena that is already cool. It's a walk-up counter for ordering off a chalkboard menu. They offer breakfast, lunch, coffee/tea, and baked goods. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The food is prepared fresh for each order and delivered... read more

The food here is really very good and there are choices for every palate. Downside is if they're busy it can be a long wait and limited options to sit. Also, much of the seating is outside (covered) but unpleasant if cold or raining. Try to go during off hours. Breakfast and lunch are both excellent.

"When are we going back!!!!" This is a unanimous comment from my guests whom I have brought here. I have been to the Heirloom Café many times - alone and with others for pleasure and for business, with family and friends (American, Belgian and French). We continue to explore the menu and find that universally the different dishes we have... More

We go to Heirloom for breakfast. It has a large menu and good portions. This is not cafe/diner food. There are many interesting dishes so it helps to go with a group to try them out. We like the poached egg breakfast. Kind of a huevos ranchero with a gourmet twist. The service is good. The noise level is not... More

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.
