Pasadena area -- looking for weekend lunch spot with patio

broccoliluv | Sep 22, 2010 09:59 PM

I have friends driving from opposite directions and meeting for a Saturday lunch in Pasadena (both are about an hour away). They would very much like to lunch where there is an outdoor patio for dining. In the past one of the people has enjoyed the patio at Il Fornaio in Old Town, but they'd like something different this time. They are open to almost any type of cuisine and price range medium and up -- mainly looking for location suggestions and I'll let them sort out food preferences. Sidewalk dining is OK if on a relatively quiet street (I suggested Malbec). There used to be a great patio at the back of Market City Caffe -- has anything gone into that space and, if so, is the patio still in use? They'll both be coming off the freeway for lunch, so South Pas is probably too far on streets, but places in La Canada / Montrose, etc., could also work. Thanks for any suggestions you can offer.
