I absolutely love living in Pasadena! I have been compiling a list over the years of all the restaurants I love to eat at and all the places I love to go! So I thought I’d share them all with you and see if you had any suggestions of your favorite places in Pasadena and/or the greater Los Angeles area.
Green Street Restaurant (146 Shoppers Lane, Pasadena) – This is a must for everyone! And if you go, you need to try their Diane Salad. It is probably one of the best salads I have ever tried. Their quesadillas are also very delicious!
Lemonade (146 South Lake Avenue, Pasadena) – Lemonade is a perfect spot to stop on those hot days to grab a light snack and a delicious cup of Lemonade!
Melt It! (105 North Hill Avenue #103, Pasadena) – Specialty Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, delicious soup, and deep fried Oreos, Snickers, and PB&J!
Mothermoo’s Creamery (17 Kersting Court, Sierra Madre) – Three words: Homemade Ice Cream! This is a cute little shop with the most delicious homemade ice cream I have ever tasted. They make their waffle cones right there too!
Roscoes Chicken and Waffles (830 North Lake Avenue, Pasadena) – Chicken and Waffles doesn’t sound too good, but they are quite delicious together! This is a must try place. But expect to wait awhile if you don’t have a reservation!
Dog Haus (105 North Hill Avenue, Pasadena) – Gourmet hot dogs, delicious corn dogs, milk shakes, and tater tots.
Ramen Tatsunoya (16 North Fair Oaks Avenue, Pasadena) – Great ramen if you’re wanting something for a colder evening!
King Taco (45 North Arroyo Pkwy, Pasadena) – Delicious, cheap, street tacos. Need I say more?
Blaze Pizza (667 East Colorado Blvd, Pasadena) – Personal pizzas! They have extra drizzle sauces you can add after the pizza is done cooking too!
Places to Visit
Pasadena City Hall (100 North Garfield Avenue, Pasadena) – City Hall is beautiful! If you walk inside the courtyard, there is a huge fountain. This is a beautiful place to take photos and this is also where they film the show Parks and Recreation.
Old Town Pasadena – Old Town Pasadena is on Colorado. It is about 3 – 4 blocks of shops, restaurants, coffee shops, and much more! Definitely a fun place to go on evenings.
Vroman’s Book Store (695 East Colorado, Pasadena) – Wonderful little town bookstore. It’s a little dangerous for me to go in since I love buying books! They also sell stationery!
Griffith Park (4730 Crystal Springs Drive, Los Angeles) – Great place for hiking and there’s always events going on too!
