The views were spectacular and the only way to truly see all of LA and a beautiful sun setting on the ocean. We will hope to be back someday. More

Discover Pasadena

Known as a mission city, San Gabriel is an artistic town where people love creativity and innovation. The food is a part of the entire scene with American fusion leading the way. Duck hash is made from duck confit, apricots, and chile jam and served at many of the American restaurants near the Cordova-style mission entrance. Mediterranean foods are a welcome addition to the area's diverse cuisine options with choices like spaghetti squash casserole with caramelized onions, organic tomatoes, zucchini and freshly made mozzarella cheese. Italian is another favorite, featured at fine dining establishments where you can get authentic handmade pasta and other provincial dishes.
