This building was not open when we were there - around noon on a Monday. All we could do was to peek in window at the diner.

When I visited there was an art show happening. I attended and treated myself to lunch! The service is excellent in a very aesthetic environment! Lots of fun staff and delicious drinks and food!

My husband was less then impressed when I said we were going to the Woolworth Building but in the end he didn't want to leave. Trust me, stop in and take a step back in time. It is small, but that matters not.

It is pretty cool the owners and city of Oxnard kept the Woolworth Building retro. The little diner on the corner is wonderful . My son attended the charter school there.

Spotted The Woolworth Building and had to park and go see. We had Woolworths in Dublin when I was growing up in Dublin in the 1960's. It had the typical store appearance and it's great to see the name around still even though the stores...More
