Best place for picnic boxes/baskets around Pasadena?

We'd like to get a nice picnic basket to take on an excursion for lunch tomorrow. Any suggestions for good places around Pasadena? Not over-the-top extravagant, but better than just a box lunch from the Corner Bakery.

    Julienne, Fiore Marketplace or Nicole's.

        Agree about Nicoles, but didn't you just "downhill' Julienne?

          The prepared foods from the market section are not as bad as the restaurant side. Esp. for a picnic basket, it serves its usefulness.

            We'll try NIcole's. Will they make up a basket lunch for you?

              Yes.
