Walkers Cafe San Pedro
Cabrillo pier is located in San Pedro (pronounced San PEE dro) and is an empty 1200 foot slab of concrete that was dedicated in 1969. Although a ringside seat to Americas busiest seaport, it’s simply a fishing pier with sinks and large metal cabana shading for the fisherman. It’s what’s near the Pier that’s well worth the visit.
A mile away is the massive and intricately decorated Korean Friendship Bell Pavilion. It was donated by The Republic of Korea in 1976 to honor veterans of that War. It boasts a spectacular 360-degree view of the ocean, Catalina Island and the San Gabriel mountains from the pavilion. Right across the park is Walker’s Café. This historic location has been featured in movies like China Town and Black Dahlia.
