In Town For U2 in Pasadena...Breakfast Suggestions?

Hello fellow Chowders...the wife and I are going to the U2 concert in Pasadena and sticking around and going to the Huntington Library the following day. Any suggestions for breakfast in that area? I'm not familiar with Pasadena and we're willing to drive a bit if it's relatively close. Not looking for anything fancy...just good ol' American or Mexican breakfast will do. Thanks!

  1. Um, we're not Chowders, we're Hounds. Green Street has awesome breakfast burritos.

    1. Tonny's on the west corner of Orange Grove at Lake Ave. Great for both Mexican and traditional breakfast! It is a little place with a lot of heart. Great carnitas. Hand made corn tortillas.

        Tonny's is outstanding. The chile verde is not to be missed.

        The best breakfast burrito is at Lucky Boy on Arroyo in Pasadena.

      2. Marston's has great breakfast items, particularly the corn flake crusted french toast and the omelets,

        1. Novel Cafe serves really good breakfast.

          1. Thanks to all and I apologize for using the wrong terminology. All of the suggestions sound great and I can see that I'll have to make a return trip to try them all. Thanks again!
