“Great neighborhood and outdoor shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Of course I like it because I live here - but you may like it too. The neighborhood was established in the 1920s and has been preserved to a great extent. It is on the national historic register and the predominant architecture is American Bungalow style - similar to great northern neighborhoods of the same era.
In the center of the neighborhood is The Old Hyde Park Village, a collection of up-scale shops and restaurants (Lululemon, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Anthropologie, West Elm, and many privately-owned boutiques. For great food, there's The Wine Exchange, Piquant, Timpano and Nature's Table Cafe. My favorite is the CineBistro, where you can get a great dinner and drinks while watching a first-run movie in LazyBoy-like seats.

“quaint and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Many unique things to do. Make your own stain glass soap at Milagros, paint your own pottery at the art studio, eat delicious casual and fine food at various restaurants, visit the near by park if you have kids. Visit Cine Bistro where you actually get served dinner while watching your movie in a leather reclining seat.

“Mini-Europe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

For some reason, Hyde Park always reminds me a little bit of Amsterdam. It's always so tranquil and inviting. Great place for a stroll after lunch or to bring a book and read.

“lovely place for a stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

This is such a lovely, upscale, area to walk around, have lunch, visit stores and even go to a movie. Unfortunately a lot of the places have closed down due to lack of activity but I still go here often.

“Lots of Hype, Mostly bars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I heard that this was a great area to walk and shop. We made went there for dinner and thought we would walk around after. This is definitely more of a young/college place to hang out. Lots of bars and bands playing. Not many shops in the area.
