Pasadena - one dinner & one breakfast
I'll be in Pasadena from Feb 8 at 5pm to Feb 9 at 3pm. Lunch on the 9th is taken care of.
From my research on your fine board, I'm pretty sure I'm going to Daisy Mint for my monday night dinner. Unless someone talks me out of it.
But I haven't found much for breakfast.
I'll be staying at the Hilton on Cordoba and S. Los Robles, will have a rented car, and have a 10:00 apt in S. Pasa (Huntington & Fremont).
And I want a delicious breakfast!
Interesting is good, too. Pho would be nice, but that's probably asking too much. Creative eggs work.
Head south on Los Robles and turn left on Mission in San Marino. Julienne's is on the left side of the street. It is as close as you can get to a European sidewalk cafe in So. Cal. and they have a great breakfast. Do a little shopping in the attached gourmet market.
For dinner you are on your own.
For breakfast, try anyone of the following:
Mike and Anne's
Alot of people will inevitably chime in with a Marston's rec, but I find that place overrated and overhyped, esp. when it's crowded during the weekend. But on a weekday, it might actually be bearable when there is no wait for tables.
