Grand Avenue is like coming home to a time past. It is the site of the Escondido Farmers' Market on Tuesday afternoons, where the vegetables and fruits are abundant, as well as flowers and food specialties like kabobs. There is a large fabric store - not a chain version, a long, narrow barber shop (Andy's) with a parrot out front, a modern kitchen and bath design store, a vacuum and sewing machine store on the corner, the family pizza restaurant, an Irish pub, a wine bar, and many more. Our favorites, though, are two of the dining venues, which happen to be almost directly across the street from each other. Vincent's Restaurant is a very special, elegant place that is so narrow you can almost miss it when walking past. It is the site of our special dinners while in the area. The other, A Delight of France, also known as the French Bakery and Bistro, is our favorite lunch or brunch spot. It is now under new ownership, and we see a great improvement in the service and upkeep of the tables. The food is exceptional - and then there are the pastries and deadly, large almond croissants! The street is a good place to stroll.
