The Marketplace

market place

One of our favorite places to dine in Downey is a one-year-old restaurant called "The Marketplace" at the corner of Florence and Tweedy. It is a refreshing change from other restaurants for several reasons.

First, they have combined the quickness of ordering at a counter like a fast food restaurant with the table service of a higher end restaurant. The staff is very attentive and always gracious and accommodating. Second, and this is the best part, their food is second to none. My wife and I love the chicken Alfredo, the pastrami feta panini and we have recently discovered the Philly cheese steak sandwich. Third, we love the ambiance of eating outdoors. They have created a unique sidewalk cafe atmosphere on a busy thoroughfare by incorporating a waterfall to muffle the traffic noise.

If you come to Downey, you should visit this site. They won a Downey Beautification award for how they changed for the better the look of this corner.


  1. It's right around the corner from our house! A good addition to Downey: we like to walk over there, and enjoy the outdoor cafe seating.
