Nothing much here, just a couple of typical cafes and shops. We were surprised that the 'village' area consisted of such a small collection of shops. Wouldn't really bother with it if you're pressed for time.

A few years ago, this trendy suburb was full of fantastic little gift shops and trendy cafes, well worth a visit. However this visit was disappointing with only one of the shops, Elephant Walk, down a little laneway, remaining.

There is quite a few cafés, pub, restaurants, ice cream shop, clothing shops etc. You would be spoilt for choice if unsure what you feel like, I think there is something for everyone.. My favourite place is a Japanese Restaurant called Renkon and has been now for many years :)

Enjoyed our time in Parnell, checked out some of the many eating place on Parnell Road and the cool shops. Only 10 mins from City Centre. Lovely place to stay and spend some time.

Quite the experience for shopping for unique, one off beautiful products, gourmet dining and a lively nightlife at the various bars. It has a quaint old fashioned (but tastefully restored) feel to the buildings and there are little walkways to explore that take you to shops and cafes hidden away from the main street. Worth an explore.
