Muzeo Museum & Cultural Center
Make it an epic Throwback Thursday (or any day of the week) by exploring Anaheim and Orange County’s roots at the Muzeo! In addition to a permanent exhibit featuring local history, rotating exhibits celebrating diverse history and cultures of residents.
Okayama Kobo Bakery & Cafe and Bizen Bar
Opening its first shop outside of Japan, Okayama Kobo Bakery & Cafe calls Center Street Promenade home. The newly opened bakery serves the sweetest treats made from wheat flour imported from Hokkaido, making the cookies, muffins, and other baked goods lighter in texture. Head next door to their Bizen Beer Bar where they're pouring local and Japanese beers.
Anaheim Packing House
No visit to CTR CITY would be complete without a visit to the Anaheim Packing House. Originally Sunkist's citrus packing plant from the early 1900s, today APH is a thriving two-level food hall filled with the most delicious dining in the region. Enjoy live music from jazz, blues, and indie artists, Thursday-Sunday.
Make sure MAKE is on your itinerary. What once was a marmalade factory is now a makers' heaven with tenants like Unsung Brewing Company, Pali Wine Co., and Jav’s BBQ, with Stone Grove Stillhouse coming soon. Enjoy the outdoor patio with your friends or family.
House of Chimney Cakes
House of Chimney Cakes has officially gone viral, bringing traditional Hungarian desserts to Anaheim. These creations taste as good as they look with cylinder-shaped churro-like cones finished with over-the-top toppings.
