My wife and I had a Tuesday lunch in the Woolworth Building, downtown Oxnard. It was really just more of a trip back in time to when nearly every little town had a Woolworths. The restaurant here is one of those places where you place your order at a counter and they hand you a number for your table and... More

The Woolworth building itself was so much fun to go and visit for the nostalgia, as my grandmother used to take me to the Woolworth in Lansing, MI when I was a child for lunch so it was fun to visit. They had a postcard machine, pen machine and stamp matching so you could get the originals and send it... More

Lots of fun memorabilia from the old Woolworth days. We enjoyed coffee in the restaurant; only wish we had known they served breakfast sooner!

This is a great tribute to Woolworth's stores and history. Many great artifacts and also a running cafe in the building with good food options. Worth a visit.

It's not your normal diner or restaurant but a nice fun place to get a sandwhich and soda. The decore is a mixture of funky, old and new mixed together. But hey your in an historical building of the old Woolsworth, when things moved at a slower pace.

The outside is okay. It looks similar to the original building. The restaurant inside has nothing to do with Woolworth, plus I will not eat there again. Any hamburger place would have better service and food. Not much to see. In ten minutes you will be done.

This old Woolworth building has a charming restaurant called Fresh and Fabulous which is delicious! Also the building has kept some of the original items from that era and has a tiny museum.
