Great food and Great prices but the service is spread a bit thin. We had a wonderful dinner but only saw our actual server a few times. But I will definately go back again because the food was top shelf and the price was exactly right!

Tucked away in a corner of Shopper's Lane in Pasadena this restaurant has always been like a home away from home...On my last visit I stopped by the bar and had a few drinks( Remy XO, Heinken...) The tender was courteous and polite and the staff was welcoming as usual....Didn't have time try their food this time around but I'm sure the quality has remained intact.... Devin G.

The Cornucopia Salad is the best!

I usually always go there for that salad, and a jar of the Dianne dressing as a take-out item, but my last experience was sub-par, because the server did not apologize after giving me a completely cracked

Famous for their homemade zuccchini Bread.
Green Street is great for their generous portions. These guys are not stingy. None of that "California Cuisine" Barbie-doll-size portion b.s.
Salad freaks love their famous Dianne Salad.
PersonallY, I like Green Street best for their breakfasts. Go on the weekend, bring your friends and soak up the sun on their patio.
My only complaint? The parking. No street parking close by, you have to park in the garage next door and pay $.
Warning: Do not look for the Green Street Restaurant on Green Steet. You won't find it there! Ha. Must have been located there originally.

Green Street is an institution in Pasadena. Its breakfasts and menu offerings are varied, affording something for everyone's tastes or dietary preferences. I have been dining here even before I qualified for the senior discount, which I now appreciate. However, I do have one major complaint - the terrible coffee which is also overpriced for colored dishwater. I have stopped ordering the coffee but would gladly pay them the $2.95/cup, if they offered something akin to Starbucks daily brew or COFFEE!

I used to go to this restaurant daily for lunch in the 80's. Ah-- those were the days!

Was back in town and went this week -- wow -- what a disappointment: poor service, overpriced, mediocre food, and then: the tour de force: they use C O O L W H I P on their desserts!

Yes -- the menu says whipped cream. But what they put tasted horrible and we complained. They actually brought out the bag from which they had piped out the stuff: it said "whipped topping" on the side!! Gag! They admitted their fraud without apology and without shame.

Hmmmm . . . . I wondered what was really in my hamburger . . . . yikes!

For those who live in the South Lake area of Pasadena, Green Street restaurant is a super place to stroll over to or grab food to go. The service is good, and my food has always been bagged and ready to go when I arrive. The prices are reasonable and the menu offers anything from burgers to fish and steak.

I stumbled upon this place and really liked it. Very fresh and healthy food, although the salads are a bit big. Apparently the trick is to ask for the lunch sized salad, unless you want to share or take the leftovers home with you.. Line outside the restaurant is a bit long, and service is somewhat slow, but all in all it's a great place for a relaxing lunch/brunch.

Their Diane salad is out of this world! It's big enough for 2 to share. The zucchini bread is so moist and delicious. You can also purchase a loaf on your way out...great for holiday gifts!

If you ever want fabulous salads to dress up or be your "catered" meal. Green Street has become our reliable and favorite supplier. All of the salads are great, but the Dianne, Southwestern Caesar, and the Cornucopia are staples for us. Enjoy JK

The restaurant is fantastic. It has a high class feel to it and satisfactory service. The salads are amazing and the zuccini bread definitely the best and must try for anyone experimenting with the restaurant. Some items maybe overpriced for what they give you, but for the most part the prices are worth it.

This place seemed a little confusing. I couldn't decide if it was nice - - it seemed like it was trying to be fine dining but not quite there. The food was mediocre at best. I had the special shrimp taco salad which I was craving, but was a big dissapointment. The dressing tasted strange and there was WAY too much of it. The menu was overpriced for such average food ($14 for my not-so-good salad). However the zucchini bread is great, ha i did end up buying a loaf to take home! I wont go back here for anything else.

I can start off with the Iced Tea, you may say Tea but yes..It is great and with a wonderful HUGE Salad how can you go wrong. Let us mention the atmosphere..Great I love to sit outside in the morning or evening it doesn't matter they have heat lamps that are great. They have tasty breakfasts and they have a grilled cheese to die for. If you are in Pasadena or not, go and you will not be disappointed. The wait staff is wonderful too, and if you would like to sit inside they have a great ambiance in there also. I have been a customer of theirs since the 1980's when they were on Green St.

Green Street is a great place to have business meetings. They are known for the Diana Salad, if you have not tasted it you must. They are also great with community support, such as giving cerfiticates and salads for events and meetings. The food is excellent and customer service is great. Thanks

OK. So I go to this restaurant expecting to be able to get a really great salad. Guided by the reviews on this site, I chose to order the Diane salad (dinner size) along with a Pasadena sandwich (not suggested by this site but I wanted red meat!). The sandwich was fine. OK quality meat on OK quality bread with some sauteed peppers and onions. It was very straightforward and plain. The salad could be described in the same way. The Diane is iceberg lettuce with poached chicken, rice noodles, and toasted almond slivers and some tasty oil based dressing. I have to give the dressing some credit, but the rest of the salad was mediocre to sub mediocre. It was quite disappointing. The best part of the meal was by far the zucchini bread. The service was fast and professional.

Bottom line- Don?t go here expecting a great meal or a great salad. Come here for good zucchini bread and to enjoy eating so-so food on a nice patio.

The Diane Salad is fabu! You can even purchase the dressing to go! Don't forget to order the zucchini bread...it's to die for! The service is good too! There can be a bit of a wait on weekends for brunch so try to go early to get a table.

Located behind an alleyway, you would only know about this restaurant through a recommendation or a skim through citysearch. The salads are great, especially the Dianne salad (featured special). The portions are HUGE! They also serve delicious zucchini bread in lieu of the traditional stale white bread served at other American restaurants. They have dishes ranging from quesadillas and sandwiches to rice plates and pasta. Sit on the patio and enjoy the sun with your food.

The last 3 times I have eaten here the service has been excellent. It is in a quiet yet lovely setting for an outdoor meal when the weather suits. Don't forget the option of take away! We love to order a salad and take it home with us. The salads are large enough to easily serve two, and if you ask they will set aside 1/2 from the kitchen without dressing so you can take home that second serving. The zuchini bread is the best. We are now trying out their quesidillas and they are good too.

Green street is consistently great! We really go there for the eggs benedict which is on the brunch menu but can be ordered by request all day. They have their own hollandaise sauce that is straight from heaven. The salads are a Pasadena secret, we love them. I especially love the Spinach and Field Green salad, but they are famous for The Diane. You can order big bowls of salad for parties and don't forget the yummy zuchini bread. Also, service is terrific at Green Street.

This is kind of hidden behind lake ave where there are other restaurants. If you go in the little entrance by William Sonoma you will find it easy. We sat outside on the patio and it was so pretty there are trees and greenery. The waitress was very knowledgable about the food and was accomedating to our picky habits. The herb chicken was very good as well as the Diane Salad. The garlic mashed potatoes were really good. The portions are large and meals are 13-16 dollars. I would go again.

ok you really do have to try everything that everyone else recommended. the zucchini bread is sooo good. i got the thai charbroiled chicken and loved it, especially the sauce- its a little bit spicy cilantro sauce with steamed vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes- possibly the best mashed potatoes! i tried the diane salad because my mom got that. it was good, but i think this place has some better entrees to offer. The service was phenomenal. the waitress was so friendly and knowledgable. it was beautiful outside so we sat on the patio and still got great service. the location is great. its nice and quiet. the entrees range from about $10-$20 and they serve huge portions! i would definitely recommend this for anyone- on a date, by yourself or with a group!

What can I say about Green St. except that they have exemplary (sp?) service. The service is excellent and their zuchinni bread is the best i've ever had. The price is a bit expensive but it's well into the "you pay for what you get" category. They specialize mainly in salad and I can recommend the "Green St. Salad" which isn't listed on their menu but you can request it, pair it up with your favorite dressing (mine is 1000 island) and you've got a great salad for lunch and possibly dinner if you can't finish.

PROS: Fast service and good environment to be in.
CONS: During rush times wait times are a bit long.

I ordered the Steak and Dianne entree for dinner, and it came with their famous zucchini bread. The bread was great! It's sweet and is like banana bread, except with zucchini! The steak was done medium rare, and was perfect! I didn't even need sauce to go with it. The Dianne salad was good, but I was expecting more with all the rave reviews about it. One thing is they use iceberg lettuce instead of the romaine I'm partial to, so that may be why. My fiancee' thought it resembled cole slaw a bit (which she doesn't like).

The salads are amazing, but know that if you get the full size, it's enough for two or more people. The menu doesn't make it clear, but all salads are available in half size AND dinner size, which is smaller than a half size, but still enough to make a meal. The Dianne, Frank's, and the Cornucopia salad are all excellent. The quesadillas are also enormous and very good. At dinner, the meat loaf is spectacular; get it with the grilled veggies. Hamburgers are so-so. There's a daily soup, but the corn chowder is always on the menu and is delicious. Green Street also sells loaves of its famous zucchini bread, and make-your-own Dianne salad basket--it comes with the dressing and the crunchy Asian noodle topping.

We ate breakfast here one morning and recieved poor service. There was one waiter for an entire side of the restaurant and he was nowhere to be seen. The food seemed pretty good, but we were so busy trying to attract the attention of a worker, that I really don't remember what I ate. When we left, I realized I never got my side of zuchini bread! Maybe I caught the restaurant at the wrong time, I might give it one more try.

Green Street Restaurant is known for its selection of large, delicious salads. Try their oriental chicken salad and order extra zucchini bread. They do offer a large selection of entrees. I highly recommend this place for catering business lunches (contact Dinners Delivered to place order) and for going out with a large group. Their food is delicious and plentiful. The restaurant is consistently busy. Hours: Mon - Thu 6:30 am - 9 pm, Fri & Sat 6:30 - 10 pm, Sun 8 - 9 pm.

I highly recommend this place for catering business lunches (contact Dinners Delivered to place order) and for going out with a large group. Their food is delicious and plentiful. The restaurant is consistently busy. Hours: Mon - Thu 6:30 am - 9 pm, Fri & Sat 6:30 - 10 pm, Sun 8 - 9 pm.

Great salads, good breakfasts, and the best zucchini bread ever! This is my Mom's favorite place, and whenever she is in town we are there at least 3 times a week. I also buy her the Dianne salad dressing, and ship it to her - THAT's how much she likes it. It's also great for sitting outside and enjoying our great weather.

The best salads you will find...possibly ever. this well know pasadena find is positively great. its the perfect atomsphere for a casual lunch with friends, a business lunch, a quick dinner or even take out. the diane salad with the zucchini bread is the best thing on the menu...although i really enjoy the sandwiches as well. you can buy the diane dressing and bread to take home and make dinner for yourself or a host gift. a tip for free parking - part down the street and walk across the street.

This restaurant is one of my favorite in Pasadena. The salads are delicious and service is usually exceptional. The Diane salad is always a good one. And the zucchini bread that comes with it is worth purchasing as a loaf. Green Street is wonderful for an afternoon lunch with patio seating, or for a warm evening out.

The Diane Salad is my favorite. I always look forward to the zucchini walnut bread. I have yet to try something I didn't like. The waiting staff is friendly and accomodating. They have a convenient take out service as well.

Pros: zuccini bread, large portions, patio seating

Green Street Cafe is relatively small with outdoor seating, it can get packed, but rightly so. They create a variety of tasty salads. My suggestion would be their signature salad, The Dianne (spelling?). Their full size salad servings are large. Along with their salads they serve a really yummy zucchini bread. I haven't had much else, so I hope that's enough to get you to go. As far as kids go, the conversations can get loud, so if you have a well behaved kid that can sit still for a while and talk, bring them in. But you will annoy people if your child is a wiggle worm and has a problem keeping their excited squeals down. Oh, by the way parking is bad. You can park in the garage for a small fee. There are a couple of shops to relax and walk off your food if you choose.
