Little Flower and The Kitchen on W Colo Blvd Pasadena

Visiting the Gamble House last Thursday, we asked at the gift shop for nearby adventurous lunch possibilities (not burgers) and were directed to LIttle Flower. Pulling into the rear parking lot, I spied a back loading dock next door piled with towers of huge coolers. After ordering some great sounding lunch sandwiches and salad, I ventured next door to find The Kitchen For Exploring Foods--a catering company with a most sumptuous-looking deli case. They must cater multiple or large jobs to account for the pile of coolers out back. Their menu is large and the food looked great. Looks like an ideal "it's what's for dinner quick stop spot" .

After our lunch at Little Flower (a delicous Brie/Mushroom/Lemon Zest sand, a goat cheese and greens salad, and a pulled pork and cole slaw combo), we headed to Kitchen for some dessert. The selection was very good, from cookies and bars to cheescake, brulee, pie, tarts, cakes. I chose an almond cakelet and cheescake bite, others chose the oatmeal cookie, lemon curd-filled cupcake, and other goodies. All were well balanced not too sweet, good fresh butter flavor, and would quickly reccommend this place for baked goods. Would go back to wither place for more "exploration" any time. Prices seemed very reasonable and service was great at both spots.

We also did some serious nursery hopping but can't review that here ;-)
