As wedding guests come into town on Saturday 5-8pm, I would like to have a meeting place where we can all have a bite to eat, see other family members...an open-house kind of setting, come and go as anyone pleases and pay their own way.
Anywhere from Camarillo to Pasadena. Perhaps order-at-counter places that can accommodate 20-40 people? Buffets with banquet-type room where everyone can gather?
I considered the Farmers Market on Fairfax, but perhaps a little inaccessible for out-of-towners?
Aroma Bakery & Cafe (busy on Sat night?)
Coral Tree Cafe (busy on Sat night? parking on street?)
Stanley's (Counter orders?)
Corner Bakery (boring?)
California Chicken Cafe (noisy? crowded?)
Any other suggestions? Or comments on my ideas? Thanks for your valuable help!
