Green Street Restaurant is where Pasadenans go to enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and it's been a Pasadena tradition since 1979. It is centrally located just off South Lake Avenue and is within walking distance of hotels, the convention center, the Pasadena Playhouse and popular shopping areas. Green Street has an eclectic menu featuring savory salads (the ever popular and addicting Dianne Salad is ordered over 2,000 times per week), tasty meats, fresh fish and creative sandwiches served on wonderful breads. Guests enjoy a full bar and interesting wines by the glass on a beautiful patio or in the airy interior. Take-out and full catering services are also available.

Granted, if I were looking for a spot to eat on Lake in Pasadena, this probably would not be my first choice if I were taking it just by face value.  It's kind of hidden, not very updated, and has more of a classic crowd for it's majority of patrons.  But once I heard about the amazing happy hour deals I decided to give it a try anyways.  The Diane Salad is the best deal there is out there!  A heaping plate of salad (which if you like the pasadena salad found at Trader Joes, than you will love this.  It's basically the same thing, but giant), a slice of zucchini bread (you're going to wish it came with a loaf), and a glass of your choice of house wine.  All that for $9!! I haven't eaten inside so I'm not sure what that view offers, but there is a nice little patio to sit on, your only view would be of the alley that the restaurant is located in but I enjoy a little people watching with my glass of wine.  Very relaxing, with little sparrows bouncing all over the place looking to snag some of those zucchini bread crumbs!  Admittedly, I haven't had anything else on the menu, but if it ain't broke don't fix it!
