Old Pasadena Small Group Food Walking Tour

This Old Pasadena food tour will acquaint you with extraordinarily delicious treasures that you may not typically find or taste on your own. This tour promises a myriad of flavors that are both unforgettable and habit-worthy. The fascinating stories behind the food, and this historic district that was once only a sunny land of orange groves, are guaranteed to entertain and delight.

Colorful alleys and secret courtyards will spice up your path as you and your guide seek out independently owned and operated cafes, restaurants and specialty shops. These are often establishments where the owners are involved in the day to day operations and where the food is prepared using fresh ingredients for maximum flavor. Tasting stops may include an iconic local Mexican cafe, a traditional Indian restaurant, an artisan chocolatier, and a California olive oil store. Discover the pleasure of a sensory experience at a handmade soap kitchen and enjoy a tea tasting and tutorial.

In addition to the food tastings, this tour tells the history of Pasadena from the time when it was both the city's commercial center and a popular winter destination for wealthy easterners and mid-westerners, to its long period of abandonment and deterioration, to its revitalization as one of the most visited destinations in southern California and a district listed on today's National Register of Historic Places. The stories of Pasadena's history and of the people who were instrumental in its development and redevelopment over the past century are certain to keep you engaged throughout the duration of the tour.

Please Note: Parking is not included in this tour. We recommend that you bring cash or change to cover any parking fees.
