They are famous for their Diane Salad....The dressing is divine. There is outdoor dining which is very nice. No reservations so you can get caught in a line.

Family owned in Pasadena since 1979, Green Street is a nice space and offers a full bar and an extensive menu of American-ish food, including appetizers, salads, burgers, steak, chicken, fish and pasta. Everything tasted good and the service was helpful, but it is a bit expensive relative to other places in town.

I have been bringing my children to Green street nearly 20 years! Love the outdoor sitting during the day. Although not a big area but is very causal and simply pleasant!

We have been going here for years. Good food. Comfortable atmosphere. Musts are the Diane salad and the zucchini bread. A visit will set you back some money. A recent takeout order for four came to $70.

I have always loved this place for Breakfast. I tried something new today, their Southwest Eggs Benedict. Made with a spicy jalapeño sausage, and the hollandaise sauce is a little spicy too. Not too spicy, just very delicious. And never to forget their famous, zucchini bread.

Sunday brunch ordered soup (too many chic peas), French toast, omelette and drinks. Soup was lackluster, French toast were heavy and hard on the edges, omelette was very good as were the potatoes. Outdoor patio was nice but is hard up against the side street. Would we try this restaurant again? Probably not. It just wasn't exceptional or memorable enough.

I was catching up with friends and introducing them to other friends so we all decided to meet at Green Street Restaurant. It is in Shopper's Lane just east of Lake Street. Parking is easy. The waitstaff kept changing on us--we had 4 people waiting on us with breaks, etc. It didn't keep our orders from arriving hot and delicious.... More

Green St. is a Pasadena institution originally located on Green St, hence the name. The long standing favorite on the menu is the Diane Salad. Ladies who lunch or need a PTA lunccheon dish order this. Their zucchini bread is delicious and available for purchase. A popular pace for lunch/brunch more so than dinner.

A great long serving place to relax and get great service with outstanding salads and famous zuchinni bread. Breakfast is on a higher plane. Stephen's sandwhich is a favorite. We've been going here for over 30 years and it remains fresh and vibrant.
