Playhouse District – Pasadena, CA

I’ve started an ongoing list of fun places I love to go here in the Pasadena area!  If you think I’m leaving something off the list, let me know.

Restaurants 

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!
