Eight adults had lunch at about 1pm yesterday (Saturday). Ordered a variety of lunch entries including salads and sandwiches. All the food was great and service was fast. We will definitely go back the next time we are in Pasadena.

Marston's is located in an old cottage home that has been transformed into a cute restaurant on Walnut Street. There is parking out front with meters and free parking next door in the parking lot. Arrive early, we had a 10 minute wait at 7:45 am on a Friday morning for a party of 3. It is worth the wait!... More

My friend and I came here for breakfast in April 2016. Parking is difficult but we were lucky to find a place as we arrived just before the restaurant stopped taking breakfast patrons. They have a 30 minute timeframe (11 - 11:30 a.m.) where no one is seated. Breakfast was substantial and delicious. Since we had a late breakfast, there... More

I made a special trip from the LA airport because of a couple of special breakfasts that I had when I stayed in Pasadena a couple of years ago. Unfortunately I arrived at 11:15 and they would no longer serve breakfast. I ordered lunch and was very disappointed. Would highly recommend for breakfast but not so for lunch. Very conveniently...

After a 8 mile hike, showered up and walked here from hotel. Converted house, super ambiance, friendly courteous service, Tiffany was very attentive. The two salads; Pasadena and Cordierra were filling with plenty of protein.

OMG. Why is this place popular??? No parking. Noisy inside and out. Inconsiderate. Slow service. Expensive. My french toast was so cold the butter never melted!!! Let my disabled friend wait 20 minutes for a table that had been empty the whole time! Note: a coke in a can is 3$. It is the worst.

Most excellent breakfast. Even though we were the first people to arrive in the parking lot at 7:10 - we didn't know everyone was gathered around the front door before their 8am Sunday open and they had a clipboard out to put your name on the seating list. A little frustrating because we practically had the entire staff walk past... More

Our first morning in Pasadena we were hungry but slept in too late to take advantage of breakfast at many of the restaurants nearby. Fortunately Marston's was a quick walk from our hotel (The Westin) and we got there in time for brunch. We sat on the front porch of this converted historical home and enjoyed the beautiful weather. We... More
