Tiny Woolworth museum

Tiny museum in the cafe, takes you back to the 50's. Only takes about 10 minutes to look at everything, but kind of fun.

We are old enough to remember seeing or buying display objects and to appreciate relative brevity of tour experience. We learned that NYC Woolworth building was tallest

Food is great and lots of choice. Some of the local police eat here so you know it is good. Friendly staff.

Very limited menu, dark not friendly decor. Wait staff was very friendly. We will probably not return.

Stopped in Woolworth's just because it was there still and going in took me back to childhood times. (Only other one I've been recently was in Santa Fe, NM). The store is very authentic in its layout keeping with the old times store. Cafe has pretty good simple American dishes. Fun to visit & to share with kids who didn't... More

This building has been here a long time. It is no longer a Woolworth's but you can get a good sandwich.

This is a great place for lunch and after looking at the menu, I can't wait to go for breakfast. Large portions and very fresh. The pear/walnut salad was delish and the chicken salad sandwich the same. My friend has the ham and cheese with her salad and was very happy as well.

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
