Went here for lunch when business had me in the area. The place was hopping at lunch time on a week day, but I immediately had a seat at the bar. Order a beer and cheeseburger and despite the crowd both arrived very quickly. The...More

Got a basic cheeseburger and fries and a piece of rhubarb pie à la mode. Everything was excellent. Recommended.

As advertised in the name, it has pies (many, many and the ones we had were superbly crafted, classic pies) and it has a good quality diner style burger. If you're watching calories, or if you're veggie or vegan...probably not your best option in Pasadena....More

Quite simply the best pie I've found outside of my mom's kitchen. If you like a tender, crispy crust and a high meringue pie...This is the spot. Recommend eating lunch elsewhere and stopping here for dessert. 6 different meringue pies...The Chocolate is my favorite. YUMMY!

If you like fresh eggs for breakfast and hot warm toast. Then this is the place to go to. As witness the huge number of students from CalTech that eat there. I have been eating here for more years than I acre to admit.

Great burgers, amazing pumpkin pie, yummy grilled cheese. No frills. Expect to wait. Very busy. Can't wait to try other types of pie.

I read a review once written by a person who went to a famous sea food restaurant in Boston and complained about her steak. I heard a young woman complain about Rome, Italy, on a travel show because everything there was so old. And I...More
