Restaurants in Pasadena


Akbar Indian Cuisine

Metro Station: Memorial Park, Gold Line

Walking Distance: 4 minutes/0.2 mile

Address: 44 N. Fair Oaks Ave., Pasadena 91103

Phone: (626) 577-9916

Hours: Mon-Thurs, Sun 10:30am-11pm; Fri-Sat 11:30am-11pm




An intimate New Yorky setting, distinctively flavorful Indian food, each dish redolent with regional spices, instead of the one-curry-fits-all approach taken by many Indian restaurants. And their pepper lamb goes surprisingly well with a Central Coast Syrah. Our pick for Pasadena's top Indian restaurant.





Europane Bakery

Metro Station: Memorial Park, Gold Line

Walking Distance: 5 minutes/0.2 mile

Address: 345 E. Colorado Blvd. Pasadena, 91105

Phone: (626) 844-8804

Hours: Daily 7am-5:30pm



Euro Pane

Delicious macaroons, (pistachio, blackberry, caramel sea salt and chocolate are stand-outs) plus maybe the best egg salad sandwich you've every had. (We're guessing that not even the Cal Tech profs and students who frequent the place can diagram the science behind Europane's egg salad sandwich recipe). They have two restaurants in Pasadena: their second location is 950 E. Colorado, a nine minute walk from Lake Station.





La Luna Negra

Metro Station: Memorial Park Station or Del Mar Station, Gold Line

Walking Distance: 8 minutes/0.4 mile or 9 minutes/0.5 mile

Address: 44 W. Green Street, Pasadena 91105

Phone: (626) 844-4331

Hours: Tues-Thurs 11am-2pm, 5pm-10pm; Fri-Sat 11am-11pm; Sun 11am-10pm; Closed Monday



Luna Negra

Spanish food, sangria and live flamenco. The seating is often communal and they serve family style, so come prepared to meet your neighbors and fellow flamenco aficionados. We usually go for the tapas: papas bravas and boquerones are two of our favoritas. One of the most social and boisterous restaurants in Pasadena.
