Great fresh foods, epecially the omelets and salads. I very much enjoy the neighborhood vibes and a homemade feeling of the food. One does not experience a big corporation experience.

I go there quite often for breakfast or lunch. They recently started serving dinner. The food is quite good. The place is small so the service can be a little slow if they get busy, but the servers are nice. The parking lot is small and strangely configured. Watch out turning into it or you may scrape your axle.

I love this place. Some of the BEST coffee in town, better than almost all the local Pasadena and all the Altadena coffee houses. Pancakes here are delicious, as are the Belgian waffles. I enjoy the salmon teriyaki salad at lunch and for weekend dinner the Bison burger can not be beat.

Dedicated staff and enormous portions make this neighborhood eatery a real find. Limited seating though worth the wait. Great Eggs Benedict and an omelet that only a NFL lineman can finish. Prices are reasonable as well. I hate to write this review because I want the place all to my self!

We were looking for something cute and unique for breakfast while visiting California. We ran across Amy's and gave it a try. We were going to be eating lunch in a couple hours so we told the waiter that we wanted to just split breakfast. Not only was that ok but they literally divided it in half and put it... More

Seems to be open for breakfast, lunch, or brunch. Has managed to survive longer than most places in this general location. Good grilled cheese sandwiches, vegetables, and salads.

This place is easy to miss, but it is worth searching for if you are in Altadena. I think it serves breakfast and lunch, but may be expanding to dinner. We had a couple of great sandwiches, reasonably priced. A real find.

We used to enjoy Amy's for brunch on the weekends. We haven't been there for about a year, and decided to take our friend last Saturday. The restaurant is small and was very busy. They were extremely accommodating and put an extra chair at a table so we could be seated. That was great. Our server quickly took our order... More
