Heirloom Bakery & Café anyone? This small place is located in South Pasadena right next to the Gold Line Station. And yes… we do venture out of Pasadena once in awhile.
Day 105 of 365 Things To Do In Pasadena brings us to a small bakery & café that really serves QUALITY food.
In the artsy Mission West district of South Pasadena, this colorful café features breakfasts, quiches, salads and pizza, plus freshly baked breads and scones. Personally, I have to say this is one of the best places to go for a fresh variety of country-style food.
They have the most delicious home-made Hostess cupcake! Heirloom’s Hostess cupcakes have just the right amount of velvety chocolate ganache on the top and creamy marshmallow at it’s core!
With the variety of sweets and treats, it really is difficult to pick which dessert to have! Oh… and did I mention that you absolutely have to try the carrot cupcake – to die for!
I started with the cupcakes because I cannot resist them. They are truly the best I’ve ever had. But for breakfast and lunch they have really delicious and filling food as well.
For breakfast I tried thier breakfast sandwich filled with scrambled eggs, tomatoes, lettuce, bacon, and deliciousness! I LOVE how they make COUNTRY BREAD every day. It just makes a sandwich so much better when the bread is thick, tasty, and soft all at once.
I also have had lunch at Heirlooms a couple times, and the meals have been excellent!
The downside to Heirloom Bakery & Café is their prices. Yes… they are very, very pricey at times! Cupcakes run at around $3.50 and meals between $10-$12. BUT! Don’t get discouraged… and come in for a treat.
Also, because Heirloom is so popular, sometimes there’s quite a wait so be prepared.
There is no official parking, but street parking is available on Mission.
Come for the food! You won’t regret it!
