There are many places to dine in Pasadena but special reasons to visit the venerable Green Street Restaurant
For instance, those crispy home-style potato chips that I can make a meal of and the very original zucchini nut bread that is not only delectable but also nutritious.
The broad menu at Green Street includes sensibly priced and superior omelets, salads, sandwiches, quesadillas, and tempting entrees that are nicely presented in bright, pleasant surroundings at its longtime address, 146 S. Shopper’s Ln.
An egg dish I savor is the Eggs Benedict with Black Forest Ham and an ultra-rich house hollandaise sauce with potatoes. Treat yourself to avocado slices with brunch.
Try Charlie’s Breakfast of scrambled eggs with bacon, grilled onions, and cheddar cheese topped with sour cream and salsa. Served with toast or that great zucchini bread and potatoes….
The special Cornucopia Salad offers mixed greens tossed with breast of chicken, avocado, raisins, dried cranberries, mandarin oranges, green onions, apples, toasted almonds, and crumbles of blue cheese, tossed with citrus blue cheese vinaigrette for great taste and good health….
Green Street’s Monte Cristo sandwich is made with Black Forest Ham, Swiss cheese, Dijon mustard with sourdough dipped in egg batter and golden fried. Served with mango chutney. Very tasty….
Among dinnertime entrees are charbroiled fresh salmon with garlic smashed potatoes and herb roasted chicken from Petaluma Poultry served with fresh veggies and a wild rice medley….
There’s much more to enjoy including Mexican dishes and home-style desserts served seven days and nites at Green Street.
