i have read the reviewa of this restaurant. some of thiese people are unrealistict and plain wrong. this is a casual cafe. the owner serves very fresh food, salads are better than green street on so lake., bareakfast is always very good,, my favorite sandwich is the grilled chicken w/avacado. sevice is attentive. some reviews have a problem with decor, let them go to west la and oay more. yes, some prices here are more than cocos, dennys etc.maybe $4 more. if you are happy with paying less for 3rd class food, go there. for me, i would go to kathleens anytime.

My family enjoys eating or take out here. They make great food and serve with a smile. Their salads are large enough to share and I love their tuna sandwich.

I am not a food snob, especially when it comes to breakfast. But a BAD breakfast is UNacceptable. Fisrt off, the creme curdled when I put it in the coffee. It had a scuzz rim inside the pourer. Usually this happens because the cream has been sitting out awhile. But they just opened! Then my omelette came. Runny, and full of what tasted like frozen vegetables. Yucky yucky chesse. potatoes not cooked. Toast never made it to the table. The ketchup was snagged away from me before i was finished eating and there was only one other couple in the place. Come on. Then the bill dropped and my share was close to $20. Not worth $5.

If a Mexican breakfast is what you want do not be fooled by the review of this restaurant in the Pasadena Weekly. They only offer 3 dishes and are skimpy on its contents. I came in today with my Mother and the waitress had terrible customer service skills and had a busser tell us that she was too busy to accomadate us. By the time she brought out the rest of the order our food was cold. We were ignored throughout our visit except from the bussers whose job is to bus the tables not wait on us. After speaking with the owner i became more infuriated because all he said was I'm sorry in a low tone with the waitress at his side. then we were basically rushed out the door! do not eat here if you want customer service.

If bland is what you want, you can't get any blander than Kathleen's. My fiancee ended up with dry chicken and vegetables that were so over cooked it was hard to tell what they were. The roast beef in my sandwich was old and should have been thrown out several days ago. It was so aweful I couldn't finish it. The rest of Kathleen's left nothing to be desired. I think the decor is suppose to remind you of Grandma's, but my grandma wasn't cheap and tasteless. We were especially disappointed since this place got good reviews. I suppose if you hate tasty food, this would be the place to go.

PROS: none
CONS: terrible, bland food and atmosphere

My family has been going to Kathleen's for the past (almost) 20 years!! This restaurant has never ever failed to have a friendly staff, fresh great food and the perfect quiet atmosphere. The quiches, salads and sandwiches are great! And their dinner menu has a nice selection of fish, chicken and steak with some mexican dishes as well. Kathleen is often there helping her staff, but first and foremost she has the restaurant and its standards in check always! It is by far my favorite restaurant in Pasadena!

This a great place to take a date or family. Contemporary Metro atmosphere. Really good Turkey on Croissant and omelettes. Good Mexican dishes also. French fries and fruit are served with the entrees. Really good Pumpkin Walnut bread also. Any dish you order- you will be pleased.

I've been eating at Kathleen's for the past 17 years. This has got to be the best food ever. You can't go wrong. Try the grilled cheese on sourdough, the soups are to do die for, cream of broccoli is super good. Best fries ever eaten. When in season the strawberry crape is delicious. From the seafood to the mexican entrees you are going to have a great meal w/ good prices, and the friendliest staff. Also have to mention breakfast-- any omlette is awsome but the belgium waffles w/ fresh strawberries and bananas. Guarenteed a wonderful eating experience. ENJOY!!!!!

Ok...so my family and I are big about dining out on the weekends and we have seen this little restaurant a few times driving around so we decided to check it out. The only thing I really have to say is that for such a small, dingy place I thought the prices were outrageous. Thats it.
