Lemonade on Lake Avenue

Lemonade, the quirky lunch spot, is coming to Pasadena.  The restaurant has confirmed a June opening in the old Napa Style space at 146 S. Lake Avenue.  This will be a perfect spot for the lunchtime crowd as it’s centrally located between the large office complexes just north and south of this area.

Lemonade has been in expansion mode as of late.  With space already in West Hollywood, Downtown LA, Venice and MOCA, they are getting set to open their latest outpost in Brentwood later this month and then concentrating on finishing up the Pasadena location.

If you have never been to any of their locations, they have a modern twist on the grade-school cafeteria.  “Come lunchtime, you’ll grab a tray and slide it down the counter to examine your options. Unlike those early years, though, you’ll actually want to build a meal from what you see under the glass.” Their marketplace consists of interesting, small portion salads which can be taken by itself or added with their more filling portions.  And yes, their lemonade flavors are fantastic.

The Commons, the complex where it will open, is seeing an uptick in occupancy and now can feel better having Lemonade as part of their tenant list.  Now you can pick up some salads at Lemonade, cheese and meat at The Cheese Store of Pasadena and some wine at the Wine Detective for a great night.

  1. Look 4ward to having a cafeteria in Pasadena again. We lost a couple that last few years.

  2. Hey Scoop, whatever happened to Lemonade? As far as the website says there is no Pasadena location. When if ever will this place open?

    -Mr. Pasadena

    • Lemonade will be opening in lat August I’m told. The company had some obstacles with the city and permits. They also were opening up their Brentwood location and since they have only 1 crew they use for construction, they were concerned with opening up that space first for a number of reasons (one being rent is higher there).
