Russell’s restaurant has been a beloved dining mainstay since 1930. It’s easy to understand why so many folks feel nostalgic for this consistently appealing, family-friendly restaurant; typical testimonies includes “When I moved away from Pasadena the thing I missed most was breakfast at Russell’s!” and “I’ve been coming to Russell’s since the 50s…” Russell’s never seems to disappoint any generation.
Russell’s offers a pleasing combination of quaint, old world charm coupled with an invigorating culinary experience. Guests can cozy up in one of its burgundy vinyl booths in the crystal-chandeliered dining room or enjoy a more casual, diner-esque experience at the bustling counter. And no matter the meal, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, guests are served by a traditionally-dressed wait staff. Russell’s menu items range from signature breakfasts, comfort classics, praise-worthy burgers and a more sophisticated “Bistro Classics” such as grilled pork loins and Boeuf Bourguignon, not to mention an impressive (and affordable) wine list. Great for families and foodies alike, Russell’s has it all.
