Lemonade is one of Pasadena’s favorite lunch spots. Heaping salads, hot sandwiches, and savory sides like truffle macaroni and cheese and roasted Brussels sprouts are served in this eclectic eatery. Lemonade is cafeteria-style restaurant, and this layout allows customers to sample dishes before they commit themselves to a whole order.
Entrees include a citrusy salmon filet, persimmon and arugula salad, and a variety of traditional sandwiches like the turkey club with chili-bacon mayonnaise and a double-layed grilled cheese. Lemonade’s menu rotates based on seasonality, but a variety of lemonades are always available and are a “must have,” according to regulars. Try the standard, or opt for the blueberry mint, blood-orange, or pomegranate varieties to spice things up.
