Mike & Anne's is a nice neighborhood place in increasingly trendy South Pasadena, on Mission Street. It has expanded into an adjacent antique store space, so is no longer quite as crazy busy as the original, but still full every weekend and for Sunday brunch. The food is well prepared and reasonably seasonal, although some of the preparations are too fancy for the typical customer.
The downside is very inconsistent wait staff, some of whom are frankly lazy and others who try to push you out the door "NOW are you ready to order?" to turn the table quickly. The wine is reasonably priced but the selection is a little limited.
A great alternative to driving into Old Pasadena, but reservations are absolutely essential.
