Our family was staying at the nearby Embassy Suites and enjoyed the short 10-15 minute walk to downtown Brea. There was a nice choice of restaurants and we chose a relaxing outdoor cafe. After exploring the town after lunch, we ate ice cream at Farrell’s.

This is a short street, but it's got a good variety of places to eat/shop and two big movie theatres with plenty of free, easily accessible parking. The street backs onto a more traditional shopping property with several additional restaurants, and stores like World Market,...More
