We were here for a gymnastics tournament at Pasadena convention center and ate here Friday night, then Saturday and Sunday. We couldn’t get enough! Best restaurant in the area. Loved the portobello mushroom fries, chicken and bacon doughnuts for dinner and then the chilaquiles were amazing for breakfast were amazing.

Food is good, service is SO SLOW. Also, it smells like dirty rag in the dining area by main entrance. Wish that would get fixed as it definitely doesn't help with appetite.

The food was average, our skirt steaks were over cooked and dried. The salad was also average. We loved the coffee and maple bacon donuts! Our server, Madison, provided an exceptional service. She made our experience much more enjoyable. She was very patient, attentive, kind, and professional.

I'm rarely in Pasadena and relied on the Open Table reviews to select a brunch restaurant close to the Pasadena Playhouse. Perhaps it was just an "off" day since this place seems to be a favorite with so many people, but our food was tasteless and the service was laughably bad. Even the dessert was a disappointment with a chocolate cake so dry that it literally crumbled when we cut into it. We won't be going back.

I had been there with a group in September, and that experience was 5*, so I couldn’t ‘t wait to go back For the Lobster Popover Benedict. However, this time, the service was slow, and my Lob Pop Benedict was lukewarm with an abundance of potatoes - really disappointed this time.

Went here for brunch with friends on a Sunday. The food was amazing and our waitress was excellent. It was pouring rain and we were on the patio. It was covered but the roof was leaking a bit. We moved our table and it was no big but the manager still comped us 2 orders of donuts. If you go you HAVE to get the donuts!! Will totally be coming back!

The service was amazing and the atmosphere was great however the portions were small and not very flavorful.

The french toast portions were large with a good flavor. I also ordered the Chilaquiles very little egg and void of flavor.

Great, friendly service from the Hostess and Waitress. We enjoyed the Beef A Jus Sandwich and Veggie Burger with fries. The food was a bit bland I have to say but the service again was great and the ambience worth it. We also had to try the maple bacon donuts, Yum!! Thank you!

Really enjoyed the choices at Great Maple - particularly the Turkey Papparedella. Appetizers were fun and interesting takes on more traditional dishes. The seats were a bit uncomfortable but that’s about our only complaint.

As soon as you enter the doors, to an inviting and spacious interior with a strong design sense, you forget that you are at a mall (the Paseo in Pasadena). The servings were generous and every dish was fresh, fresh, fresh. The buttermilk fried chicken was a little "bready" but the maple donuts, maple syrup and flavorful bacon make such as flavorable and satisfying combination! My friend had the baby kale salad which was delicious, too. The cauliflower appetizer was really enough for 2 - 3 people "to share." The lavender lemonade was refreshing and really quite divine. The whole experience was great -- we had an attentive but unobtrusive waiter. I will be back.

Fabulous food. It was burger week. We got a yummy turkey Bree burger and salad and deviled eggs. Each one was a delight. The orange citrus snap peas were refreshing. The most ni carrot cake was huge and filling and decadent Love this place.

Food was amazing. I got the fried chicken and maple donut. The fried chicken has a little bit of spicy kick. Donut was one of the better bacon/maple donuts I’ve had. Service was really bad. My friend and I went at lunch time and there only a few other customers. We were seated right away and it took the waitress about 30mins to even notice us. We ordered when she came (she said there was confusion on who’s table it was). The food came out shortly after that and once we had a waitress she was attentive. It’s a little on the pricier side also. But great patio seating and great food.
