This is a gem of an area in Omaha - cobble stone streets, horse-drawn carriages. It's a beautiful area, and pretty hipster too. There are a ton of great restaurants, bars, and stores. On Saturday's during the summer there is a farmer's market.

Visited during a Saturday farmer's market; it was fun to pretend to be a local. However, it does create some foot traffic and parking congestion. The little shops are fun to wander through and there is a lot of old architecture to enjoy.

If you want a great place for breakfast be sure to stop in at The Diner. A made fresh breakfast that is great.

We were in Omaha for Antiques Roadshow, and needed to kill some time. We took the Hilton shuttle to Old Market and had brunch and cruised around. Very pleasant, clean, and safe.

Such a fun destination for myself and three sisters! Spent two days exploring the shops and restaurants and totally enjoyed ourselves - will return to this destination. Variety of shops and eating spots!

The only downside to the Old Market is finding a place to park! There are several great restaurants for any price range. Trini's in the passageway gets my vote. It is beautiful in there and their puffy tacos cannot be beat. There are two candy shops, book stores, ice cream, carriage rides, and street musicians. Every time we visit the... More

We loved our long weekend at the Embassy Suites in the Old Market!! I agree with others when they say the prices are high. For example at Hollywood Candy our son wanted a Hershey bar and it cost $1.90 kind of steep when we could go to a local grocer and pay .75 cents. But over all we really enjoyed... More

My wife and I frequent this restaurant frequently. The food is always fresh and abundant and the downtown atmosphere is always a people watchers delight. I definitely recommend the establishment and if I could say the only part of the experience that could improve would be on wait times to be seated. We have waited a few times longer than... More

This is typical of many cities with an "old" section of town brought back to life. Lot's of plant life and all the little quaint shops you'd expect from this type of place. Also close to the river, but not on it. Take time to check out the shops that interest you. Lot's of good eating place too. And check... More

The brie is stellar. Their wine selection is pretty darn good, too. The chicken salad is worth driving 5 hours to eat. 'Nuf said.
