Great Breakfast, Cute Place – It sits on the nice tree lined Green Street in Pasadena; it's cute and cozy inside and the prices are very reasonable for what you get. The friend I went with is a regular and loves this place. My huevos Rancherous was excellent and judging from the crowd at the place it is a local favorite.
Cute hidden little find! – This was a random find on a Friday night, and we left very pleasantly surprised. We were seated immediately, and the service was very friendly. The lamb and seafood pasta entrees were delicious, as was the decadent chocolate mousse and coffee for dessert. Because it was our first visit, we were not aware that they do not serve wine, but we were informed that you may feel free to bring your own bottle, and there is no cork fee! I can't wait to try their breakfast or lunch.
Absolutely nothing good about this place – This place is beyond disappointing. My boyfriend and I
tried their Sunday brunch and walked away absolutely astonished that we managed to spend $35
on brunch and still be hungry. Neither of us are the type to demand big portions when dining out, but we do expect to feel satisfied for $35.
I ordered the grilled vegetable and gruyere omelete, which was flavorless and came only with pico de gallo. When I asked if my omelette included toast, I was told yes -- and then charged 75 cents for ONE, unbuttered slice.
My boyfriend ordered the crab cakes, which were absolutely miniscule and served with two fried eggs and that ominous pico de gallo.
The wait staff spend most of their time chatting behind the counter and ignoring customers. Diners were walking up to the counter to get them to do anything.
