Fiore is known for its inviting, community-oriented atmosphere where friends, neighbors, strangers and family come to relax, talk and connect with each other. This market & cafe is a treasured South Pasadena tradition that is simply not to be missed.
This daytime gathering spot is perfect for lunch and offers a scrumptious array of homemade sandwiches, including the ever-popular Roasted Chicken (homemade bread with basil walnut pesto, mayo, and burrata cheese) and Short Rib (homemade bread with pickles, asian slaw, and chipotle mayo). Hearty soups and fresh salads like the Asian Chicken Salad (mixed greens, Asian slaw, sesame seeds, cilantro, roasted chicken, crispy lavash strips, with a ginger dressing) add great variety to the menu, as do the many offerings for kids.
Fiore’s desserts are another reason to pay this cafe a visit. The cupcakes, cookies, lemon bars, brownies, blueberry loaf cakes, and Magic Bars (graham cracker crust with coconut, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and walnuts), are all longtime favorites of customers.
While the sandwiches and desserts are incredibly popular in their own right, Owner Bill Disselhorst’s homemade bread is quite possibly Fiore’s crown jewel. Bill’s popular breadmaking class, which teaches small groups of customers to make the cafe’s bread, perfectly illustrates this cafe’s innovative offerings and strong connection to the community.
