Whether on vacation, a school field trip, or out for a casual stroll, a visit to EL PASEO INN promises to be a memorable experience. EL PASEO INN is located on downtown Los Angeles' historic Olvera Street, a colorful Mexican market place across the street from Union Station, and walking distance from City Hall and The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. Located in the heart of Olvera Street among the bevy of shops and puestos, El Paseo Inn personifies – a taste of Old Mexico. Olvera Street is the setting for holiday celebrations such as Las Posadas and Cinco de Mayo, as well as Mexican style dancing and music.
From the outdoor patio with a view of the marketplace, to the bevy of historical pictures and paintings that grace the walls of this Los Angeles Landmark, the El Paseo Inn experience personifies history. It is housed in what was once the Pelanconi Winery, the Cucamonga Winery and later the Padre Vineyard Company. Locals and tourists alike savor the mouthwatering handmade tortillas and chips dipped in the homemade guacamole and salsa…and that's just for starters! El Paseo Inn serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
In addition to the outdoor patio, the restaurant offers a large dining room with balcony seating. Make sure to also visit the bar, a historical landmark itself. It is among the oldest “watering holes” in the City of Los Angeles.
