    A nice little find in downtown Pasadena. Good breakfast, clean, nice atmosphere. Real old timey place. Excellent service, food came out of the kitchen very quickly. Good stop. Highly recommended.

    Service feels like a hotel, but portions are similar (i.e., small). When I just missed breakfast (which ends at 2pm) they made an exception for me. Free Wi-Fi is nice, too. Wifi password is 6263187006

    Great vibe...and great if you're travelling solo...sit at the bar and relax! ABC omelet with a banana nut pancake to follow is my personal fave 😋😋😋

    If you ask kindly, you can get your side of hash browns prepared as the special spuds (addtl charge) but well worth it.

    Good burgers, it's changed since I was a child-a bit more upscale. Still, nice play to eat.
