If you need a snack break in California Adventure, you’ll find most of the food clustered in the Golden State area. Take a tour of the Mission Tortilla Factory or the Boudin Bakery, then taste the delectable products of these places in the nearby restaurants. For a Mexican feast, try Cocina Cucamonga Mexican Grill, which uses the products of the tortilla factory. For more traditional American fare, enjoy the food at the Pacific Wharf Cafe or the Taste Pilots’ Grill.
Unlike Disneyland proper, in California Adventure responsible adults can quaff their thirst with a variety of alcoholic beverages. If you’re just dying for a cold beer, get one at the Pacific Wharf Distribution Co. Or if your love is for the endless variety of high-quality wines produced in the Golden State, head for the Golden Vine Winery, where you can learn the basics of wine creation and production. Have a glass and a pseudo-Italian meal at the sit-down Wine Country Trattoria at the Golden Vine Winery.
