“quaint village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

love the village atmosphere here. It's nice to buy from the Sunday farmers' market--cool and laid back not like in LA! The restaurants and coffee shop are great and busy. I wish there was a bakery.

“Kind of Boring”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Before we arrived in California I did some reading about Old Town and was expecting so much more. There are a few shops and restaurants. We went there twice, the second time for the Sunday Farmers Market for which was about 10 booths. The only restaurant that was hopping was the "Starbucks like" coffee shop.

“A real gem in the desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

A great spot for yummy food (Solano's is our favorite) and the coffee shop is great, too. The Art under the Umbrellas Saturdays offer unique, quality goods from talented artisans. Several retail shops to choose from and the ice cream store is a good one.

“Great "New" Old Town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

As a 17-year resident I was dubious when it first opened but now I can walk to several good restaurants, get a nice chardonnay at the Wine Bar and even get new eyeglasses! Farmers Market in "season" just makes it along with The La Quinta Coffee Co. Got to get off Hwy 111 though.
