22 Mills Place in Pasadena has a storied history. Edwin Mills Restaurant is its future.
Built in 1894, the site began as the China Palace. In the following 120 years, the location has housed a thriving marketplace, a stable, a laundry, and the popular Equator Café.
Under the creative guidance of Teddy Bedjakian and his staff, Equator has matured from hookah bar to coffee shop to restaurant-bar, providing a haven for locals who desire a sophisticated space filled with art, quality cocktails, and a modern American-fusion menu.
As the next step in 22 Mills Place’s identity, Edwin Mills takes its name from the roads intersecting at its door: Mills Place and Edwin Alley, both named in the late nineteenth century to honor Pasadena entrepreneurs. Participating in this tradition of entrepreneurship, Edwin Mills breathes new life into the location while allowing a single Buddha, which welcomes guests at the door, to pay homage to its past.
Welcome to the new Edwin Mills. We look forward to seeing you here and continuing our relationship!
