The Taste & Tour of Old Town invites Lansing residents and visitors to sample tasty cuisine from eight Old Town restaurants and gourmet food retailers. Patrons may also view multiple Old Town lofts for an idea of what it’s like to live in Old Town.

The sampler gives visitors a chance to taste a variety of Old Town’s finest fare, all in one afternoon. Participating locations include The Chrome Cat, El Gallo Loco, Golden Harvest, Grand Café Sir Pizza, Hattie’s Kitchen, Mama Bear’s Café, Pablo’s Panaderia and Poppa Leo’s Pizza.
