Old Pasadena's Cheesecake Factory is a good place for eating, especially if you want to get a lot for your money, BUT, it is soooooooo , sooooooooooooooo jammed pack anytime with long waits to dine that you may want to go. I recommend staying clear of it and to try any of the wonderful, more unique cafes/restaurant down Colorado Blvd.
Unique Suggestions: Come when the doors open for lunch!
Fun Alternatives: As I mentioned before, try another restaurant nearby so you won't have to wait so long to make an order.
The Cheescake Factory has mediocre food, high prices, with long lines.
Unique Suggestions: Only order the cheesecake and take it home.
Fun Alternatives: A real restaurant.
