Always fun to sit outside on the beautiful patio and have a long brunch talking with friends. The food is an interesting blend of California cuisine and traditional.

I have been going to Green Street since they first opened in the early eighties at their first location on Green Street. It has been consistently good. Also good for families or a nice easy date!

Service and food were good. Each menu item ordered was easily enough for two or in our case three people to share and the total cost with tip was a reasonable $35 each. Park in the garage next door--$3 an hour.

My family has lived in Pasadena for nearly 30 years and in that time, I bet I have eaten at the Green Street Cafe 50+ times. More recent residents may wonder why its called "Green Street" Cafe as it is located on Shoppers Lane, but older residents will remember when the original cafe when it was indeed located on nearby...

One of my favorite things here, besides the Dianne Salad - of course, is the Stephen's sandwich. So good! Recently started enjoying their happy hour appetizers, the chips with the blue cheese and french onion dips is the best! My mom was visiting and we came here twice so she could get the small Dianne and a glass of wine... More

If you go to Aspen, Colorado and you want to know where to eat, you ask the locals. This local appreciates the GSR for the relaxing patio. I enjoy my Quinoa, Sweet Potato and Smoked Salmon Hash. Always have to take home a couple of loafs of zucchini bread...the kids love it. The service is unpretentious: down to earth. Enjoy!

The best Chinese Chicken Salad ever! Order half or take home half. Large patio for outdoor dining in sheltered off main street location with attached parking structure. This is one of Pasadena's long lasting local favorites. In case you wonder why "Green Street" - that was it's original location.

We come to Green St. Restaurant often for lunch. It is a little pricey but lunch is more affordable. The food is wonderful. Service is outstanding and efficient. The location is perfect next to a covered parking garage and exploring Pasadena.

We were staying in Pasadena and after checking Trip Advisor, I chose Green Street Restaurant for dinner. The restaurant is very attractive and has a lively vibe. We had an excellent server and enjoyed every part of our meal. I had a shrimp pasta dish which was packed with shrimp and a delicious sauce with just enough garlic flavor. My... More

I work in the area and the location is convenient. The food is decent, just overpriced. Their salads are very popular. I usually have their tuna fish or Stephens chicken sandwich..Service is ok. If you are in a rush, you might want to ask for your bill, half way through your lunch.

Green Street Restaurant is where Pasadenans go to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and it's been a Pasadena tradition since 1979. It is centrally located just off South Lake Avenue and is within walking distance of hotels, the convention center, the Pasadena Playhouse and popular shopping areas. Green Street has an eclectic menu featuring savory salads (the ever popular and addicting Dianne Salad is ordered over 2,000 times per week), tasty meats, fresh fish and creative sandwiches served on wonderful breads. Guests enjoy a full bar and interesting wines by the glass on a beautiful patio or in the airy interior. Take-out and full catering services are also available.
