Groups of up to 15 partake in one of two culinary walking tours through Orange’s unique eateries. A three-hour Orange Sampler Tour whisks guests along a 1.25-mile route dappled with stops at a variety of restaurants serving cuisines ranging from Cuban to Italian, along with a few local boutique shops.
The Orange TasteLAB Tour begins with a vegetarian-style breakfast item before attending a master class at a gourmet cooking school, and sampling an unusual savory sausage creation. In between these three stops, patrons visit shops along the way, learning about Old Towne Orange’s historic district and its emerging food scene.
The retro-themed Vintage Orange Food Tour kicks off at Ruby’s Diner, after which guides take visitors to Old Towne Orange Home Grown Farmers and Artisans Market in the historic Villa Park Orchards Packinghouse. Guests watch cooking demonstrations and sample the house specialties during meet-and-greet with restaurant owners and managers. All tours include a bottle of water for each participant.

Old Towne Orange Walking Food Tours
Deanna and Renee's memories of childhood are bathed in the warm, nostalgic glow of bustling family celebrations nourished by Northern Italian dishes and homemade wine. So influential were these culinary family traditions that the sisters banded together in adulthood to share their love of fine dining and their hometown with visitors from across the globe. Thus Old Towne Orange Walking Food Tours was born, a venture that enables the pair to shepherd curious foodies and history buffs of all ages through Old Towne Orange during their meticulously planned culinary walking tours.
The leisurely paced tours introduce guests to the town’s diverse selection of bistros, bakeries, and farmers' markets via numerous stops to sample house specialties. The Orange Sampler Tour introduces palates to the panoply of cuisines in the county, from heirloom tomato salad to french baked-potato soup.
