“SECO”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Cafe 140 South was recently remodeled by the Smith Brothers and name changed to SECO. Very impressive remodel and really good food. Highly recommend that you try the new SECO.

“Another Pasadena haunt...”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Been going here long before it was Cafe 140. It was the Crocodile cafe and owned by a group who own another restaurant next store.
Good food, sit outside. Interior a little dates. And the kitchen exhaust really needs to be cleaned out. I hate leaving a restaurant smelling like a fried chicken. Ergo, dine outside.

“A great place for a quick brunch”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

A very nice place on Lake, in the heart of Pasadena. Nice atmosphere, nice patio and confortable internal spaces. Typical american food at its best. Great hamburgers, good coffee and tasty salads. Very competent and attentive service.
To be recommended

“Good food. Nice outdoor patio. Lovely ...”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Walk by found this cafe restaurant. Has side walk tables set up. Nice in the shed. Unpleasant hostess. She has no greeting no smile. Wonderful waiter. As soon as sat down he came greet us right the way. Brought the bread, it's hot inside and very good taste. The salads we ordered was fresh and simple. We also had Filet Mignon sandwich was not worth $19. Diced steak, just so so to me. Most of all, good please to hand out. Will go back try other dishes.
