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; the Christmas in Old Towne Tour follows the same structure, but focuses on holiday-themed foods and includes shopping stops at boutiques and antique shops.
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 sample the house specialties, watch cooking demonstrations, and meet-and-greet with restaurant owners and managers. All tours include a bottle of water for each participant, and children 5 and younger may attend for free and share tastings with a paying adult. Peruse the FAQ section for more tour information.
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.
