All-new Shops at Mission Viejo Dining Pavilion

We attended a media preview
The Shops at Mission Viejo Food Court

It’s that time of year when many of us are out and about shopping for gifts. We all get a little tired, hungry and need some much needed fuel to keep going to stayed focused and shop our little hearts out. You’ll be happy to know that you can now relax in a newly designed dining pavilion at The Shops at Mission Viejo.

Yes, the area offers cafe seating in a large open space allowing for better flow of shoppers, you will also find communal dining areas if you have a larger group meeting you.


Perhaps you’ll be throwing a party? The communal areas can also be used for parties now; just check ahead of time with the mall staff.


The restaurants to choose from remain the same with all the regular favorites and more; Blaze Pizza, Smashburger, Rubio’s, Panda Express just to name a few; of course you don’t want to miss out on a refreshing lemonade from Muscle Beach. Quick little fun fact: a Starbuck’s will be soon opening in the dining pavilion space as well.


When designing the new dining pavilion the mall staff and designers made the decision to re-purpose the existing dining seating & tables. I love that they did that and it helps others instead of ending up in a landfill!

So the next time you’re out shopping and need a quick bite, meander thru the dining area and sit down for a moment to relax and take in the new space.

The Shops at Mission Viejo is located at the intersection of I-5 and Crown Valley Parkway. Learn more about the premiere shopping destination online at
