I bought my first new car at Longo. It was a great experience! I thought I was just going to go browse but ended up finding the perfect car at a great price. My sales lady was amazing, patient, and very very nice. This place has won all sorts of awards for being a great place. If you're in the market for a Toyota go here!
You havn't had a good candy apple until you try one from here! This company does beautiful gift baskets for all kinds of occasions. Everything is made by hand to ensure the apples, pears, strawberries, and other treats get the maximum amounts of toppings. If you're not an apple fan you can get a whole array of different types of baskets.
This company does a lot for the community of Pasadena. Thanks for being so great!
This store is so much fun. You can find all sorts of goodies from Pasadena postcards to things for your pets. The store is not very big but it is loaded with unique items. Come here if you're looking for a present that will stand out. There is metered parking on the street or pay garage just to the south of the store.
PROS: Fun & Unique Gifts
CONS: Pay to Park
This is my favorite place to park at the Burbank Airport because you can walk from the lot to the terminals. SInce I hate riding those shuttle buses and I usually don't have much luggage is a great option. I find it much faster than waiting for a bus and then driving to a remote lot. Plus it's really cheap because there is no shuttle service. If you're bringing lots of luggage, don't like walking, or it's raining you're probably better off choosing a different lot.
PROS: Cheap and Walking Distance to Terminals
CONS: No Shuttle if you have lots of luggage
I've been using this cleaner since I moved to Pasadena. They always do a good job getting clothes clean. An added bonus is that you can find coupons on the internet if you do a search. The parking lot is a bit small but you can usually find a space. They give first time visitors a discount.
PROS: Clean Clothes
This place is awesome because you can get a car wash and an oil change at a great price. It get really busy on the weekends so don't go if you're in a big hurry. The main waiting area is outside but there are a few places you can sit indoors. I've always been happy with the wash.
Although the equipent is a bit out of date you can still find some good deals. I got a great price on a pair of ski boots and the clothing is priced to sell. I found some good goggles and ski pants. I'll probably head back before the ski season to browse for a bargain.
PROS: Good Prices
Delicious bakery located on South Lake Avenue. The breakfast pastries and muffins are amazing! Their loaves of bread are also a must - my favorite is the rosemary bread. I can't wait to try one of their cakes because they are so beautiful!
Le Petit Vendome is by far my favorite wine store in Pasadena. There's an awesome selection of wine and the store offers great wine tastings every Friday and Saturday night. The staff is very helpful if you want some help picking out a great bottle. Plenty of free parking.
PROS: Great Wine, Friendly Owners, Beautiful Decor
This is a great place to go to share a glass of wine with a friend. There is a both a wine bar and a wine store. The owner is very nice and knowlegeable (and he plays good music - Frank Sinatra!). The wine selection is good and reasonably priced. There is parking lot in the back that is very cheap if you get a validation.
PROS: Good Wine, Friendly Owner
