Black Diversity

Support Black-Owned Businesses

Now, more than ever, it's important to support our local businesses, especially in the Black community.

Every February, Pasadena celebrates Black History Month and the achievements and contributions of Black Americans. But these Black-owned restaurants in Pasadena are our family and they need our support all year round. So we encourage you to visit, eat, chat, and get to know these businesses and their owners now and into the future. Below is a list of restaurants and shops you can visit during your next stay in Pasadena.
