Great service, even better food. I had the egg sandwich and it was just perfect, the staff is super friendly, service is quick and everyone smiles in that weird California way which is oddly uplifting at 9am.

I have enjoyed every meal I have eaten here--from quiche to salads to sandwiches. The restaurant is located near a busy corner near the Gold Line stop in South Pasadena. Parking can be at a premium, and the restaurant can get busy. Go when you have time to linger with friends or relax over a newspaper.

Finally had the opportunity to lunch at heirloom, and it was delicious! Tucked away on the ground floor of a nondescript building, it's not obvious to the eye or local foot traffic, but once discovered this place becomes a destination! The menu is varied offering something for everyone. Case presentation was neat, clean and all items looked appealing, especially the... More

This small place was recommended by our South Pasadena hosts. We went in for coffee and a bite to eat and we ordered bacon and scrambled eggs with potatoes and toast. My wife is vegetarian and asked if they could put her bacon on my plate but the lady offered up the perfect solution. She suggested substituting a fruit dish... More

Although I have had good experiences in the past, it is increasingly becoming clear that the kitchen and servers are overwhelmed and cannot handle volume. They were out of ingredients, got the order wrong, and it took 30 minutes for our very simple order to come out. My recommendation is not to go to Heirloom during busy times.

Heirloom is a little gem in a part of South Pasadena that is already cool. It's a walk-up counter for ordering off a chalkboard menu. They offer breakfast, lunch, coffee/tea, and baked goods. There is plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. The food is prepared fresh for each order and delivered to the table. I ordered the Chorizo scramble and... More

The food here is really very good and there are choices for every palate. Downside is if they're busy it can be a long wait and limited options to sit. Also, much of the seating is outside (covered) but unpleasant if cold or raining. Try to go during off hours. Breakfast and lunch are both excellent.

"When are we going back!!!!" This is a unanimous comment from my guests whom I have brought here. I have been to the Heirloom Café many times - alone and with others for pleasure and for business, with family and friends (American, Belgian and French). We continue to explore the menu and find that universally the different dishes we have... More
