I hadn’t eaten here in over a year and had never had breakfast here. A friend suggested we try it and I’m sorry we did. First of all, the waitress who “greeted” us did so with a mumble and a frown. Clearly, she was not...More

Small, hidden treasure - Yum burgers, including veggie burgers - and delicious pies. Worth a visit if you are in Pasadena.

First, VERY difficult to get a parking space, very confusing and with all of the posted city signage very intimidating. If I weren't meeting a fried who chose this location as well as hoping for a GREAT experience, I wouldn't have toiled around looking for...More

I will visit again because the pie was phenomenal, but only for the pie. Four of us got burger combos, couple of milk shakes, couple of sodas and 4 pieces of pie and the bill was over $100 not counting our still generous tip. The...More

The quintessential diner with a "make yourself right at home" feel. The cheeseburger and the cheesecake were literal perfection (I have a deep and intimate knowledge of both 😉). Pasadena has a lot of pretty, cool and delicious restaurants, but if you've been wandering all...More
