I walked to Lovebirds from my work having heard about it from coworkers, walked all the way back to the office, sat down excited for my sandwich...and it wasn't what I ordered. Very disappointed that I paid $7 for a bacon lettuce sandwich! And the bread was hard when it was supposed to be lightly toasted. It was barely edible.

Pros: It's edible

Cons: Wrong order, hard bread

I asked for a club sandwich and got a basic sandwich I could make at home for a fraction of the price. The sandwich cost me $7.35, it did not come with chips, just 3 napkins.
The sandwich is very basic, not toasted (like a club should be) and there is nothing special about it.
I do not recommend the cafe for their sandwiches.
Their breakfast is a little better in terms of cost, but overall I am not impressed.

The sandwiches, pastries and smoothies are awesome! My only complaint is that they're not open later :( They even have a delicious hot vegetarian meatball sandwich, as well as other vegetarian choices!

The owners make it their job to know the customers and really try hard to make you feel important. They have the best bakery in Pasadena. The only con of this Bakery/Rest. is that it is way too close to my work and I love to eat cookies!

UMM UMMM GOOD!!! Is all I have to say. All of their sandwiches are ample and delicious. The Thanksgiving sandwich is awesome and gastronomical. If you're like me ask for extra cranberry sauce. They are very accomodating. When I am feeling like only having a very light lunch I will order a scoop of tuna with a side of avocado and crackers. The amount that they have determined is a side is quite large. The desserts are also pleasing to the eye and pallet. The chcocolate covered strawberries are delectable as are the custard fruit tarts.

If God ran a deli, this would be it. Although not as cheap as the ralphs deli down the street, it pretty much rivals Ralph's. A plethora of breads abound the bakery, all of which are delicious. The pastries, wow Im getting excited just writting this. Their choco chip cookies are dangerously good. I usually roll with two of them and a roast beef sandwich. It can get crowded durring lunch hr, but stick it out, its worth it.

PROS: Chocolate chip cookies, sandwiches and a ton of bread what else do you want
CONS: Its closed on Sunday, maybe God does run it???

my roomate and i went here on the way to work one day. they have great coffee, bagels and muffins. they also have terrific breakfast. not too expensive. what really blows me away though is the service. after only going in three times, they rememberd my name and what i liked. they asked me about work. since my office gets food delievered from lovebirds occasionally, they offered to pack a special bag with my favorite sandwich and my name on it when we ordered from them. they have the best coffee and the best service!

Went here for some breakfast, and I will go try out their lunch as well. They have a huge selection of pastry items. The staff was friendly and helpful. It is a cute inside and seemed very clean. They offer sandwiches and other cafe items.

The best place about this restaurant is that you can watch your fresh sandwich being made. I particularly love the turkey, bacon, avocado. I vary the bread, but love the combination of "fillings". the "Thanksgiving" sandwich (not sure that's the real name) is also yummy...it's what you'd think it would be...Thanksgiving dinner between two pieces of bread. Yyyuuummmy. This is definitely a lunch stop. Don't try going on Sundays, as they're closed. Give it a try.

Lovebirds has the prettiest breads...yes I said pretty. I've had the pleasure of tasting their sandwiches and they are ample and satisfying. I also love a checkerboard cookie they offer. Great place to read the newspaper, drink coffee and enjoy their pastries and sandwiches.

Lovebirds has the best turkey sandwiches in a crossaint. The food is fresh and the service is fast. The bakery consists of all kinds of yummy cookies and other fresh indulgents. There is a pretty large menu but I highly recommend any of their sandwiches. Lovebirds also does catering, which is great for any party or office luncheon.

Twice the quality of Starbucks at 1/2 the price. Try their wonderful pastry selection. Creme Brule is world class at a fraction of the cost of most European bakeries.

PROS: Selection, prices, quality
CONS: Location is just out of the trendy downtown area but worth the walk.

Another great location, good food & service equals success! I first patroned their little & original location when they barely opened in Alhambra around 1986-87 on Main Street. A decade and a half later, they moved to a more and upscale location further east on First/Main Street. We used to go there after school with friends and they knew all of us by names, it was our daily hung out, the food was just too good to miss. I remember their smoothies are the best...the "Coconut Pineapple Tropical" or something like that, it was a filler alone. Fortunately, residing in the city of Pasadena, with their new addition, I still enjoy their good food and services to this day!

The two brothers that run Lovebird's make the best sandwiches in Pasadena or Alhambra. The new location in Pasadena (on Colorad Blvd.) is a bit bigger than the original location. Grab a sandwich and one of their pastries and settle back for a tasty lunch.
