Camille’s Sidewalk Cafe in Paseo Colorado

After a some-what quick run-through at a bridal show last month held at the Pasadena Convention Center, my sister and I were famished and in need of something refreshing to wash down the sweets we sampled at the show.

As we walked back to our parking in the Paseo Colorado structure, we spotted Camille’s Sidewalk Cafe off of Green Street and decided to check it out.

The menu looked pretty expansive with salads, sandwiches, wraps, soups, paninis, smoothies and more. I opted for the Spicy Chicken Tender wrap while my sister went with the Peach Paradise smoothie.

The wrap has bacon, spicy chicken tender pieces, provolone cheese, romaine lettuce, sprouts, salsa and ranch dressing wrapped in a jalapeno-cheddar tortilla. It came with tri-colored tortilla chips and salsa.

All the flavors blended well with each bite. The refreshing crunch of the romaine and alfalfa sprouts with the spicy and warmth of the chicken, saltiness of the bacon cooled with the ranch dressing. It was a very tasty and satisfying wrap, and although it seemed healthy, this 10 ounce wrap comes with 799 calories. Definitely more than I thought or planned.

The Peach Paradise smoothie also refreshing and tasty and although it said it had peaches and honey, I don’t believe I tasted real peaches in it, but still pretty tasty and not too sweet.

Camille’s also has some breakfast selections and offers catering and lunch boxes to-go. Camille’s Sidewalk Cafe has various locations throughout California.

The Pasadena location is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. It is located at 285 E. Green St., 626-440-1212.
