I'm looking for a place to take a coworker for a decadent birthday dessert treat. We work in Pasadena and have strictly one hour for lunch (though we can take it late, at 1:30, to avoid lunchtime traffic). Going to South Pas or any other city is out of the question. We need to be able to park right out front, so even Old Town is impossible. I read good things here about dessert at Parkway Grill. Is it do-able in this timeframe?
I really wish Soda Jerks hadn't closed, that would've been my first choice.
Any other ideas? I like Dots Cupcakes, but I think it's too cramped to eat in. How about Houston's? Is it too busy?
How is dessert at Hamburger Hamlet? Is there anywhere on Lake Ave. that would be good? Does EuroPane have desserts or is it more of a pastry place?
