Afternoon at Anaheim Packing House

Afternoon at Anaheim Packing House

I was so excited to finally visit the Anaheim Packing House. I remember when this whole area was closed off and there was nothing around but my friend “E” told us the city is planning to make it into a cool new hip place with food, drinks, and a bunch of fun stuff. “G”, umbelievable, thecuriousro and I arrived around 5ish and the sun was still out with lots of people checking out the place and enjoying the outdoors at a park right next to it.

Enough chat, let’s go straight to the food vendors! There are yummy places to eat so I’ll try to post them individually. Here is a very popular dessert spot called the Crepe Coop and here you see the staff making the crepes right in front of you. People are all long the stall waiting for their crepe masterpiece to be made.
