My second time visiting this square and now having lived in NM for 8 years, I found it a bit wanting. Perhaps I've grown accustomed to the plazas of the SW.
The buildings are still quaint, but the number of shops have diminished. Vendors were in the square and live music was playing which made for a nice atmosphere.

Quaint & Historic
Jul 2021 • Solo
The only bummer was I rocked up at 5pm and that's when most shops closed (I'm leading with this bc another review also mentions 5pm but doesn't mention that detail). Otherwise, my walk around the plaza and the shops that were open was quiet and peaceful, with lots of history from plaques on walls and interesting historical buildings. I enjoyed looking at the shops through windows, even if they were mostly closed.

For a woman traveling alone, I felt safe walking around this area during the evening. There are also several restaurants to choose from.

Sleepy Old Village

We strolled around Old Mesilla Village on a Wednesday evening, just after 5 PM and found everything except for a couple of restaurants to be already closed. The main town square is quite nice, but didn't really find anything else of much interest.

Old Town Feel

Driving through Las Cruces, I stopped at Old Mesilla village for a bite and some culture. Lovely old town NM style buildings and roads and in the center is the plaza with a kiosk and a church.
Parking can be tight. Nice place to walk out and buy some nick nacks from vendors that fence the plaza. Nice shopping and restaurants arounds too.

Nice walkable shops
Mar 2021 • Couples
The shops were delightful and everyone took great care for your health and safety during this Covid pandemic. Parking was convenient across the street. Easy to get to and I found a nice souvenir to take home. Many restaurants, but we did not partake. A real square with a church anchoring it at one end. Plenty of shops to meet anyone’s fancy.

Lovely church in the center of town with local merchants open around 11 am. Walked around the area early in the morning and enjoyed the ambiance. The church has a mass at 9 am with a speaker outside. Pleasant morning.

Nice place to relax and spend a couple hours roaming the streets and looking through some really good art galleries.

La Mesilla is Magic!
Nov 2020
I loved my dining experience at La Posta! It was all decorated for Day of the Dead, but I think it must always be a "trip" to see their decor! There are tropical birds making lots of jungle noise, high ceilings loaded with memorabilia and art and glittering festive lights. The ladies room is like 1930's Hollywood.
I also had so much fun wandering around the historic plaza and side streets, taking photos of the rustic beauty.
Shopping was excellent. There was plenty of original and unique stuff. I found a couple of art galleries open, and the local art was very high quality with reasonable prices.
I also ate at Don Felix cafe, and enjoyed everything so much! My favorite was the Cocoa Flan dessert! They have a wonderful courtyard for outdoor dining and they played current popular Mexican music that was really good!
