Gardena may be characterized as a hub for Asian cuisine, but the City is home to a variety of diverse restaurants that offer unique cultural experiences. The Pan, an American breakfast institution, was founded in Gardena during the Spring of 2012. After opening their doors to our community, The Pan’s remarkable dishes became instantly popular across Los Angeles. The owners, Mercedes Raffulls and Jasmine Lymon, have successfully expanded their business and now have five throughout Southern California.

From their authentic creations like the “original” loaded hash browns, or “best ever” banana pancakes, to their deep dish pan pizzas and sandwiches, their comfort food never disappoints. The Pan is always there for us, and it holds a special place in our heart.

Gardena Supermarket has been a fixture on Gardena Blvd for over 30 years. In 2019, it was acquired by SK Market and became their fifth location in Los Angeles County. SK Market is a family owned business that prioritizes the communities they serve. When the COVID-19 pandemic initially broke out in Gardena, they were the first supermarket to adjust their operations to prioritize seniors. They offered special shopping hours for seniors only to ensure they had an opportunity to obtain essential needs safely.

Gardena Supermarket has also adapted over the years to meet the everchanging needs of our community. They now carry specialty goods from Latin America and embrace healthy food trends. Customers can also pick up precooked chickens and, in the near future, will be able to choose from a wide selection of fresh salads, fruit dishes, and appetizers.

Since Gardena Supermarket opened its doors, it has always given our residents that comfortable, hometown feeling. Butchers and cashier clerks often know their customers by name. Did you know?
