The salads here are really different and interesting. I had to jump the line so I had an idea of all of the options, but no biggie. I recommend the 5-salad meal--that way you get to try a bunch of yummy salads. Yes, it is...More

Buffet with salad and sandwiches, lemonade a speciality. Nice food, a bit pricy. Pleasant staff, excellent for lunch.

Fun adventure with your friends if you want to try out a good food adventure. When with a women's group that visits new restaurants in Pasadena and was very pleased.

Disappointing dinner. Long buffet line but the best food was at the end----no insight as to the coming entrees. By the time you ordered some salads, the bill had built up to a very expensive meal. Very pricey for the average food. Cafeteria style tables...More

Lunch for two came to almost $60.00. Food is a cafeteria-style deal. Although the dishes sound yummy, what you get is pretty bland. Desserts were lousy, as in so lousy that I left my chocolate mousse...and I am a dedicated chocoholic! And the kicker...the lemonade...More

On a recent visit to Pasadena, Lemonade came highly recommended. The salads were delicious with a plethora of choices, but the other choices (entrees and desserts) were less appealing. The lemonade was wonderful!

Its a neat idea with what appears to be fresh salads and some sandwich fixings and some hot foods. I ordered an edamame/green bean salad that was OK, a turkey salad that had a good amount of bread pieces (filler) in it and a beet...More

Never been and have gone back three times in one month. Healthy, freshly prepared food. I like it. Give it a try, and when hunger gives you lemons, get Lemonade.
