Coming Home: Need Recs for Pasadena brunch & beach dinner
Coming back home for the holidays. I will be there for over a week, but I have one day to show my girlfriend around. We're looking for mid range brunch in Pasadena area for 5 people and then, after a day of driving around, perhaps a dinner spot by the beach. Gladstone's is so cliche, so I was hoping for something a little nicer. Not necessarily upscale, but nicer.
Somewhat flexible onl the locations.
I would go to Julienne in San Marino for brunch. Good food, nice amtosphere and the prices are reasonable.
The other option is Marston's but the wait is bad and I think the food and atmosphere is better at Julienne.
Less brunchy in that it's a bakery but Europane is the place not to miss in Pasadena.
