More eateries are coming to Union Station in Downtown LA! A very popular crepe restaurant from Santa Monica located on Third Street Promenade called Cafe Crepe (they’re originally from Canada with locations in Vancouver and Toronto) will be opening later this year taking over a space once occupied by Union Bagel, which shuttered three years ago in 2011. According to a manager at Cafe Crepe I spoke to, the lease was just signed and they are hoping to open before the end of this year. The new eatery will sit directly across from the much revered fine dining Traxx Restaurant, which has been operating since 1997. Cafe Crepe will also have patio seating like Traxx and add to a growing number of new businesses opening inside LA’s landmark train station including T & Y Bakery opening soon.
This is very exciting for those who have been following the amazing renovations and changes happening inside LA’s beautiful main transit hub sometimes referred to as “Last of the Great Railway Stations” in the country. More eateries and retail shops are planning to open in the future as part of a master plan to transform Union Station into not only a hub for transit, but a destination and gathering venue for Angelenos and visitors alike.
