“Best italian in Pasadena”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

The sea scallop (appetizer) were delicious. Ambiance is cosy and the service is very good. The bread is also very good.

My husband and I had brunch and enjoyed everything we had. I had Huevos Rancheros and he had pancakes. Service was excellent. Food was fresh and well-prepared.

“They serve really good food.”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Cafe Verde on E. Green Street was a pleasant surprise for us. e just stumbled on it while walking around Pasadena, CA. The restaurant is a little dark inside. Service and food were very good. I will eat at this restaurant again if I return to Pasadena.

“Best steak sandwich I've EVER had”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

The other details don't matter. Go to Cafe Verde for the steak sandwich, order it medium rare, and prepare to taste heaven. It is lightly toasted sourdough bread packed with steak, mushrooms, melting blue cheese, and a mayonnaise-mustard spread with whole mustard grains in it.

OK, here's a bit on the other details. It's a small space. If you have long legs avoid a booth. The iced coffee is yummy. The service is good enough. My friend had Huevos Rancheros and said they were terrific. Great value too. I paid $17 for a steak sandwich and iced coffee. The seats outside looked nice.

Back to my point. Get the steak sandwich. Trust me.
