Hornblower Opens New Cafe in Burton Chace Park

June 11, 2010

Just in time for summer, Hornblower Cruises & Events announces the grand opening of its newest company, Hornblower Cafe in the Park. This quaint café is ideally situated in the beautiful 10-acre Burton Chace Park, which is surrounded by water on three sides. Local residents and tourists will enjoy an assortment of freshly prepared menu items while taking in the serene al fresco setting.

Serving guests in what may be considered the best vista point in the area, Hornblower Cafe is a great spot for grabbing a quick lunch during a busy work week or snack during one of the summer concerts or movie nights in the park. The café menu items are surprisingly affordable (starting as low as $6.95) and use local, organic and sustainable ingredients whenever possible. Some menu options include the popular Chace Burger, tri-tip barbeque sandwich, or healthy options like the tuna or vegetarian salads. Kids options, desserts, fountain drinks and gourmet coffee beverages are also available. If you’re in a hurry, call 310-823-8400 to put your order in ahead of time and the café will have it ready when you arrive.

Hornblower Café in the Park is open seven days a week, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., June 5 through September 6 and is open year-round every Saturday and Sunday. The café is open until 10 p.m. on concert nights, movie nights, July 4, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. The café is located inside Burton Chace Park at 13650 Mindanao Way, Marina del Rey, Ca 90292. For more information, visit or call 310-823-8400.

The café is easily accessible by several parking lots, a bike path and the Marina del Rey Waterbus. The Waterbus operates all summer, stopping at Fisherman’s Village, Burton Chace Park, Waterfront Walk, Mother’s Beach, Dolphin Marina, Esprit 1, and Marina Harbor. For pick up, passengers can simply proceed to one of the seven boarding locations in the marina to purchase their ticket.
