Up the Street with a Paddle...

The restaurant formerly known as Wild Thyme (formerly known as The Bakery) has reinvented itself yet again. Canoe House is open, serving up Hawaiian flavors with island hospitality in a completely renovated space. (There's even a Tiki Bar.)

I haven't checked it out yet, but I'd love to hear from South Pas foodies who have tried the place. Anyone?

I hope the food is good. The name makes me think I'd go in to get some oars and a rope. HA! Nothing about that name makes me think Hawaii, although I do see the pineapple in the center of the crossed paddles on their sign.

Best of luck to the new owners. Getting a restaurant off of the ground can be a daunting task. I urge all of you to check it out and give them a try.

I've just been reading the Yelp reviews, which are mixed, leaning toward positive. Haven't had the time to check it out. I suppose it is kind of like Islands?

It's the same owners as before, Judy. They also own Shakers.

Poi oh poi....A Hawaiian restaurant in South Pasadena. I'll be anxious to hear reports on the food.

Jim and I drove through the parking lot one Sunday evening and there was some extremely LOUD music playing. Jim called it fake rap...Yelp also mentioned the sound level in there as being loud.

Would'nt the soothing sounds of water be much better?...Guess who is not going unless they change the sound.

Whaaat???!!! Wild Thyme is gone???!!!
It was ALWAYS busy when we went there...can't say that this renewal looks or sounds very appealing...oh well...it can always re-invent itself again!!!

I remember the upheaval when it switched to Wild Thyme. The big deal was a "healthier menu" and everyone threw a fit. Can't imagine bright yellow, let alone loud music and hawai'ian theme will work...but I've been known to be wrong before...

Laurie, remember when Jim and I took you, Jon and Little Bit to Wlld Thyme when you asked us to show you around South Pasadena, wanting to know about the diversity there...I said let's go to Wild Thyme and let you see for yourself.

I wonder if the image of HULA DANCERS would have gotten you to move there !!!

I've tried it twice, and I like it. There are too many televisions (imho), but some very good tasting food. The moo shu eggroll and pineapple upside down cake are notably delicious.
