Mary’s Market & Café

Mary’s Market & Café

This funky little cottage near the base of the Mt. Wilson Trail is rather tired and dusty these days, which is too bad. But it’s still open for breakfast, lunch and early dinner, with mondo-good oatmeal cookies for pre- or post-hike energy. It’s a handy stop deep in Sierra Madre for locals who love Taco [...]

Happy Birthday, Pasadena!

Happy Birthday, Pasadena!

It’s our birthday this week, and having reached a certain age, we take great comfort in seeing how good some of those who are much older than us look—like the city of Pasadena, which just turned 124 and doesn’t look a day over 100. The weekend’s celebration, held at the Pasadena Museum of History, centered [...]

Young & Healthy

Young & Healthy

Health care for uninsured and under-insured children is the mission of this terrific homegrown nonprofit. It convinces physicians, optometrists, dentists and therapists to donate their time, and local pharmacists donate medications; Y&H even gets free eyeglasses for kids who need them. It also offers parent-ed classes in nutrition and health. Want to help? Volunteer medical [...]

Peet’s Coffee & Tea

Peet’s Coffee & Tea

Yeah, it’s a chain, but you can’t discuss Pasadena coffeehouses without mentioning Peet’s. It’s one of the most popular meeting spots in town, either on the outdoor terrace or inside, where the aroma of coffee can make you almost woozy. Its robust coffee, coffee drinks and teas are better than at the (much larger) competing [...]

Fox’s

Fox’s

There’s never less than a 30-minute wait on the weekends at Fox’s, and that’s for good reason. What’s not to like about the hearty omelets, rich French toast, burgers, sandwiches, fresh OJ, bottomless cups of coffee and folksy, woodsy, 1950s setting? And when you consider all the stuffed rodents – er, foxes – you can [...]

Mary Falkingham

Mary Falkingham

Mary does abby fabby custom work, especially for big occasions like weddings and charity balls, and her work is often showcased in posh magazines and venues like the Pasadena Showcase House. But she also does special one-off arrangements that will wow the lucky recipient. This is a small storefront shop with limited hours, so it’s [...]

Breakfast with Tiffany’s

Breakfast with Tiffany’s

If you love jewelry, seeing the work of talented interior designers, and the cooking at Pasadena’s premier caterer, The Kitchen for Exploring Foods, then you’re going to want to attend the free breakfast being hosted on Wednesday by swank South Lake condo development Granite Park Place. Paige Pomerantz, manager of Tiffany & Co. in Old [...]

El Metate

El Metate

“The richest Mexican food in town” is the slogan at this storefront café, so dieters beware. The burritos are massive, the soups robust, and the huevos rancheros delicious; we also love the sopes and the fresh chips. It’s a real find near Lake and Colorado, with friendly people, low prices, a couple of sidewalk tables, [...]

Mike & Anne’s

Mike & Anne’s

We’re fans of this friendly Modern American bistro, which opened among Mission Street’s antiques stores just after Hometown Pasadena went to press; most recently, it expanded into the space next door and opened a full bar. Everyone wants to sit out on the twinkle-lit patio, not just because it’s so pleasant, but because on busy [...]
