Readers, I’ve been to a few restaurants in the last few weeks: Heirloom Bakery Cafe in South Pasadena, Bloom Cafe in L.A., Ocean Star Seafood Restaurant in Monterey Park, Gus’s BBQ also in South Pas, and today, the Central Park Restaurant (across from Central Park, of all places!) here in Pasadena.
I think these are worthy of my time for comment. But, just not right now! Whether they were worth my hard earned dough, well, we’ll just have to wait & see. However, I can say this about Central Park: try to get Star as your waitress – she’s a caring, fun sweetheart, i.e., a Star! Bringing along girlfriends is a bonus as they chip in their often alternative/progressive take on each place. Generally, the girls are more easy than me.
In the very near future we will be visitng Misty Mint an asian fusion place near Aaardvarks in Pasadena, and Amy’s Patio Cafe in Altadena. I’ve heard nothing but positive reviews from my women friends – plus from those I’ve only read.
I’ve been to Europane Bakery Cafe (on Colorado close to Lake) as well, but well, that’s an old story. As much loved Sumi’s cafe is in the Pasadena community, in my opinion it’s still underrated & under appreciated. Can you imagine this place with free WiFi one day! Oh man & woman, there would never be a slow time there. Sadly, that may only remain a dream – a vision I hope comes true one day…
In the meantime, if any of you web surfers out there have any comments on these restaurants just drop off your comment here.
