I honestly enjoyed the Mission Tortilla Factory, watching the video about "Maseca!" and eating the warm tortilla right off the conveyor belt. I for one, am going to miss it. I've been to a couple of Ghirardelli shop locations and enjoy the free chocolate sample but that warm tortilla really hit the spot!
Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy.
The chocolate shop is a good addition but I would have rather seen the bread bakery go instead of the tortillas. Hopefully the bread bakery will be replaced by something much better (and without Rosie) in the near future.
I kind of wished they put Ghirardelli where the new mexico dining place is now, that way, we would still have free tortillas, free bread and free chocolate in the same area. Also, we would've had the iconic Ghiradelli square clock tower, signage and the brickwork, leading as a better transition into the Paradise Pier & Park area and Carsland.
