Who We Are

CaliExpress by Flippy, drone photo of Pasadena location
CaliExpress by Flippy was created out of a love for innovation and great food. Located in Pasadena, this restaurant blends cutting-edge tech with delicious meals. The space has a rich history of culinary excellence, having been the original Miso Robotics lab and, before that, a Cordon Bleu school. It’s always been a place of food innovation.

At the heart of CaliExpress is Flippy, an AI-powered robot from Miso that perfects the art of frying. Miso, founded in 2016 by engineers from Cal Tech, uses advanced AI to transform how kitchens operate, making processes smarter and more efficient.

CaliExpress is the world’s first fully autonomous restaurant. Here, both the grill and fry stations are automated. Guests can watch their food being cooked by robots after using self-ordering kiosks for personalized recommendations and easy payments. This setup allows CaliExpress to offer premium wagyu burgers at great prices, ensuring every meal is delicious and affordable.

In addition to serving great food, CaliExpress also functions as a gallery and showroom. Visitors can explore the development of Flippy and other cool restaurant AI and robotics, seeing firsthand how technology is transforming the culinary world.
