Favorite Breakfast Spot: Pie ‘N Burger

Shouldn’t we all have a breakfast spot, that makes a meal taste and feel home-cooked, even though we’re not at home? Pie ‘N Burger in Pasadena does just that for many locals and visitors alike. The prices are reasonable, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is really relaxed and welcoming. Pie ‘N Burger has been around since the 60’s and when you walk in, it feels like not much has changed since then. The vintage cash register also looks like it’s been there since it’s opening, which means all of the calculations are done manually and the restaurant only accepts cash. While others rave about their famous pies and burgers, I LOVE going there for breakfast for my absolute favorite thing on the menu, the thin pancakes. They remind me of the ones my mom made for me growing up, and they are soooooo delicious, I can barely handle it. I usually start off with wheat toast and butter and a cup of fruit with cottage cheese. I like to save the bananas to eat with my short stack pancakes, spread with butter and drizzled with syrup. It can get a little busy during the weekend mornings, since there are a lot of regulars (for good reason). I doesn’t seem like any one minds the wait. For me, the pancakes end up tasting that much sweeter.
