Other unique shops include gift baskets, candies, a coffee house, shoe store, florist and gifts, home decor, and custom jewelry to name a few.



Around the square is an array of international dining experiences including Greek, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, and English, many in historically-preserved buildings. Whatever your dining pleasure, whether it is for an elegant dinner, a light Victorian Tea Room lunch, or a deli snack, Crown Point is a pleasant experience for everyone.

Several restaurants today occupy restored buildings such as the Old Crown Meat Market, the Main Street Cafe occupying the old Meyers Candy Store, the Great Harvest Bakery and Restaurant in what was once the Horst Hardware, The Registry, a bar and grill in what was the first newspaper, The Register, in Crown Point, Cafe 222 in the old Criminal Courts building which was the site of Dillinger's arraignment, and Lucretia's Restorante in the historic Fifield Mansion.
