Tender Greens is my go-to restaurant for meeting friends in Pasadena. The food is healthy and tastes great. You can either choose your own salad combo or order one of their combos. Today I had a Vegan Salad, and I loved it! It had arugula,...More

Pick a meat, salad and side and have a full tasty meal for around $10 makes for a good value in a convenient location if you're going to a movie nearby.they have tables inside and out on the patio when the weather is nice.

I really enjoy the casual ambience and modern interior but first of all: delicious, quality and healthy food options! While my kids rarely eat anything other than mac&cheese - their chicken, mashed potato & corn was consumed immediately.

Good place to have lighter and healthier meals. They have refreshing healthy salads, soups, sandwiches, and even desserts that we always enjoy. Parking is either on the street or the nearby public parking one block away. Don't miss this unique style of good simple eats.

This is actually a really good restaurant. First you choose your protein, then you add your greens plus many different interesting healthy side dishes. It’s a cafeteria type style for a quick and easy healthy food.

I would’ve loved to give it a 5, but the sweet potatoes we had were undercooked, but honestly we still ate them all because they still tasted good. The employees were super friendly and helpful. All of the other food we had was delicious, especially...More
