Perfect Secret Garden Wedding Venue 10/3/2010

Choosing wedding venue and caterer is probably the single most difficult decision in the whole planning process, but I really lucked out --- I wanted a location that is full of natural beauty, and yet close to civilization so that the wedding guests (and us) wouldn't have to drive after the drinking and partying. Sounds like a pretty impossible combination right? Imagine my surprise when I came across Happy Trails Garden. I saw it on the web and immediately thought: ""I think this is it!"" The gorgeous camphor tree totally drew me in and it is a block away from old town Pasadena. When I went to see in person, the garden was even more beautiful than I could imagine! And when the sun went down, the tree lights up in the most gorgeous way. So if your dream is a garden wedding for 20 to 200 people (I had 150), Look no more, this is the place you are looking for. And now onto the catering. As with perhaps all brides, I barely ate during the wedding. But my guests told me that they really enjoyed the food (poached salmon, grilled tri-tip, paella with shrimp chicken ham ...), and we took home a bunch of leftover and it was delicious! Last but not least, Kathy Black, the owner, is always warm, helpful, and flexible. Wedding planning is a very stressful project, but every time we talk to Kathy in person we'd literally feel the stress level come down. In retrospect I realized I worried about quite a few more things than I needed to --- If you go with Happy Trails, my advice is, just trust whatever Kathy tells you! more

Impressive Service 7/7/2009

I cannot think of a better catering company in the Pasadena area. I hire Happy Trails to cater all of my events not only because the food is great, but the service and staff are very impressive. In the past when I have hired other companies to cater my events, the staff's constant nagging, questioning, and inefficiency has prevented me from enjoying my own party as I find that most of my time is spent telling the servers how to do their job. I have found the challenge of hosting while simultaneously enjoying a party to be incredibly difficult, but Happy Trails some how makes that possible for me. Katherine Black, the owner of Happy Trails, always makes party planning run smoothly and she always does her best to accommodate my needs. I have learned to trust that she will always staff my party with a hardworking staff so that I feel like a guest at my own event. I would recommend Happy Trails to cater anyone's party regardless of age or event. With Katherine's help, we have managed to create a menu that is satisfying for all ages. Vegetarian and healthy options have always been made available to me so that all members of my party are happy. more

Great Place for Healthy yet Tasty Dining! 7/6/2009

Happy Trails is a tiny shop on Fair Oaks that the eye can easily miss, but once you try it, I'm sure it will be hard for you to resist making it your regular dining spot for lunch. The menu is brief and not overwhelming, and I have yet to try something on it that wasn't delicious. The service is spectacular and the garden in the back will make your dining experience relaxing and enjoyable. The lemon squares are some of the best I have ever had, and are a nice way to end a meal. I never walk out of there feeling overly-stuffed which is perfect during the summer. The menu is suitable for both adults and children including both gourmet salads, ( which I am very fond of!) and a variety of sandwiches. I have been dining at Happy Trails for many years and have been nothing short of satisfied every time I finish my meal. more
