Sunday brunch ordered soup (too many chic peas), French toast, omelette and drinks. Soup was lackluster, French toast were heavy and hard on the edges, omelette was very good as were the potatoes. Outdoor patio was nice but is hard up against the side street. Would we try this restaurant again? Probably not. It just wasn't exceptional or memorable enough.

I was catching up with friends and introducing them to other friends so we all decided to meet at Green Street Restaurant. It is in Shopper's Lane just east of Lake Street. Parking is easy. The waitstaff kept changing on us--we had 4 people waiting on us with breaks, etc. It didn't keep our orders from arriving hot and delicious.... More

Green St. is a Pasadena institution originally located on Green St, hence the name. The long standing favorite on the menu is the Diane Salad. Ladies who lunch or need a PTA lunccheon dish order this. Their zucchini bread is delicious and available for purchase. A popular pace for lunch/brunch more so than dinner. Parking lot next door to restaurant... More

A great long serving place to relax and get great service with outstanding salads and famous zuchinni bread. Breakfast is on a higher plane. Stephen's sandwhich is a favorite. We've been going here for over 30 years and it remains fresh and vibrant.

Lots of vegetarian options. I had the arroyo salad and it was fabulous - the dressing was really limey and good. The zucchini bread was great too. My companions had the snapper and steak - the sides were all fabulous. The atmosphere is fine and I like that the wait staff covered for each other so even though it was... More

When your server asks you if you want the zucchini bread, say yes and ask for the basket to keep getting refilled! Nice variety of cocktails at the bar if you have a short wait for a table, and plenty of choices on the dinner menu for every type of diner and every possible diet, so this is a very... More

Green Street Restaurant is where Pasadenans go to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and it's been a Pasadena tradition since 1979. It is centrally located just off South Lake Avenue and is within walking distance of hotels, the convention center, the Pasadena Playhouse and popular shopping areas. Green Street has an eclectic menu featuring savory salads (the ever popular and addicting Dianne Salad is ordered over 2,000 times per week), tasty meats, fresh fish and creative sandwiches served on wonderful breads. Guests enjoy a full bar and interesting wines by the glass on a beautiful patio or in the airy interior. Take-out and full catering services are also available.
