Sangers & Joe is a new breakfast and lunch specialist just steps from the heart of Old Town Pasadena, opening officially October 15 from Scott Kay and Dario Dell'Anno (both of Wood & Vine). With a bright, spacious build out along Holly, the globally-inspired restaurant just might be the kind of daily place the neighborhood was looking for.
Named after the Australian term for "sandwich" (plus their word for coffee), restaurant pros Kay and Dell'Anno (the latter worked at Bastide, Providence, and Drago Centro, among others), are bringing a refined approach to breakfast, brunch, and lunch, offering smoked salmon bagels, steak & eggs, and of course, a breakfast "sanger" to power your day. Pastries from Cake Monkey line the counter while brunch items range fried chicken & waffles to eggs benedict. The "joe" comes via local coffee roaster La Mill while a full complement of craft beer and curated wine can help you wash down lunch (and brunch!).
Kay and Dell'Anno have brought on consulting chef Claudio Dell'Anno (Dario's brother), who's published multiple cookbooks in Belgium, to meld flavors from Australia, Europe, and the U.S. So while everything on the bill of fare (shown below) will certainly look familiar, there will be an extra degree of finesse over your other local daytime spot. And for dinner, they're planning some guest pop-up dinners, so stay tuned.
