If you are visiting Pasadena and want to eat where locals do and skip the chains, this is the place to go. The star here are the salads. My wife always gets the Dianne. It has a sweet sauce which is addictive. My favorite is the southwest Caesar. Everyone has a Caesar but this is unique. The dressing does have... More

I've been coming to this place since the 80's, always a favorite of my uncles. The Diana salad is probably the most popular thing on the menu, so if you like salads this is a must try. The ambiance is nice and the staff is always great.

The Dianne must be world famous by now. Friends who have moved away tell me they crave that salad! There is a full bar and munchies for Happy Hour. My... More

Green St. Restaurant has been around a long time. Nice atmosphere and good service. The food is nothing fancy but that is how I like it. A solid menu and everything I have had there was good.

I've been going to Green Street for years and my favorite has always been Charlie's Breakfast (soft scrambled eggs with onions, bacon, salsa, cheese, sour cream) and Green Street zucchini bread, which is fantastic. At lunch or dinner, the must-order is the Dianne Salad -- chopped lettuce with chicken, almonds, and the best dressing ever, similar to a Chinese chicken... More

Always fun to sit outside on the beautiful patio and have a long brunch talking with friends. The food is an interesting blend of California cuisine and traditional.
