ISO nice lunch spot in SGV to treat family friend.
My mom and I are taking our very lovely neighbor out for lunch in the San Gabriel Valley. I’d prefer to stay in/around Pasadena but anywhere worthy in area would be great.
She took my mom to the Scarlet Tea Room a few weeks back, and we’d like to return the gesture in kind.
Lunch or brunch
$25/per person max
No Chinese/sushi/dim sum
Any ideas from the ever-wise chowhounders out there?
