Opening soon are CVS/pharmacy, with a drive-through for convenient pick up of prescriptions; La Sirena Grill; Golden Spoon; Wells Fargo; Green Cleaners; Esprit Nail Spa; Johnnie’s New York – A Neighborhood Italian Restaurant; and Wachovia Bank.

Slated for fall openings are Chevron and Zov’s Cafe, Bakery & Bar, a modified version of the popular Tustin bistro, featuring a Mediterranean-inspired breakfast, lunch and dinner menu in a family-friendly casual atmosphere.

Orchard Hills Village Center features a variety of trees to enhance the center’s atmosphere, including tristanias, Italian cypresses, pepper trees, olive trees and eucalyptus windrows.
