“Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

If you talk to any of the local residents, quaint is always used first to describe Hyde Park. When the economy crashed, it was hard to keep businesses in the area. But over the last year, quite a few new boutiques/businesses have opened. Sometimes, there's free music in the "park"..or an art show. The first Sunday of every month, there's a fresh market from 9am-5pm. There are 4 different restaurants in the "circle"...and several different retail stores. There's also a pottery making shop, cinema, gym & hair salon. There are 3 different parking garages...all free of charge. There's really no street parking, so you have to park in one of these garages.

“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.
