Great Local Spot

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.

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.

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
