lots of unique shops on Whyte Ave as well as restaurants. Parking is a bit tight as well as expensive in the meters! Pay attention to times you can park, I recieved a 75.00 parking ticket! so use transit if you can!

Love this area. On a nice summer day the ambience is awesome. Lots of cool shops to peak into and find the unusual. If you want to just sit and watch people there are several café/restaurants that you can do just that. Along with that the covered market on Saturdays is worth a visit if nothing else.

I visited this area at lunch time. Great interesting shops, cafes,bars,restaurants. I think at night it is packed. My experience with a " Italian " restaurant was not great. Many nice and historic buildings. Next time when I am back I will visit the Farmers Market.

This great market well worth a visit. Lots of interesting things on sale (not cheap). Selection of locally produced organic foods particularly impressive and we much enjoyed the cinnamon buns!

A fun and funky neighborhood with lots of shopping and eating choices. Great public library, tea houses, bookstores, and a few big grocery stores too. Old Strathcona Antique Mall was a huge find; I was lost for hours inside and bought more costume jewelry than I thought I would!

Always busy with little of real interest on display. Restaurants overpriced compared to other areas of city. Better options exist.
