El Metate is a walkin Cafe designed for that special customer
wanting that old-fashioned ambiance of Pasadena.. As a
retaurant we know people like that sidewalk Cafe feel. We
offer that with our outside tables and fast service. We invite all
walk-ins, browsers, and office personnel to come by and try
our menu. We believe that everyone will like our service.
