Orange Food Tours

Come and experience food samplings from a collection of emerging gourmet establishments in Old Towne Orange.  Employing innovation and creative risk taking, these restaurants are sure to have you tasting, testing and approving their food theories!

Starting at the West End of Old Towne, you’ll begin with a vegetarian style breakfast item, attend a master class at a gourmet cooking school, and sample an unusual savory sausage creation.  We’ll visit a few shops along the way, get a little background on the historic district, and find how the area has inspired innovation and community.  Then we’ll sample provisions of cheeses, enjoy chocolate, and taste unique culinary items that are sure to have you coming back wanting more.

Food Samples Include: *
– Vegetarian Fare
– Gourmet Cupcakes
– Savory Creations
– Organic Juice Smoothies
– Hostess Boutique and Antique Establishments
– Mediterranean Cuisine
– House specialty at each stop and meetings with owners and managers

The tour lasts approximately 3 hours and covers about 1-1/4 miles over flat and comfortably roomy sidewalks. The Southern California weather is almost always beautiful and mild.

The tour concludes at our original starting point, with an opportunity to just hang out, and enjoy the ambiance of Ruby’s Streamliner Lounge at the historic Orange Depot. The food samples along the way are filling enough so that for most people lunch afterward is not necessary.
