Viewing the Barnyard from Highway 1, it always looks like an interesting place to go explore. However once at the Barnyard, I find it more of a "hit and a miss". I like the garden areas and shopping at the garden store. There is Patrick James. There is a variety of fashion, jewelry, and dining places. There is also some... More

Nice combination of souvenir-worthy shops, fashion boutiques and nice restaurants. Prices are a little expensive, but there are several restaurants there that are worth the price. Very relaxing atmosphere...

Barnyard has all the the stores you need. Banking, Grocery Store. Many adorable shops and Pet stores. Hair and nails are a plus.

Shopping in the village is a little expensive and tends toward conservative design. The Barnyard had a few nice options for shopping and dining and a large parking lot. It is a relatively small center, but was still charming and had some more affordable options.

This place wasn't what I expected with the Barnyard name. We came here to stop at the bakery. There were a few shops but we didn't see anything we wanted to check out, so we got our pastries and left.

I suppose there are some fine shops here, but this place feels a little worn out and sad. I wouldn't exactly come here to hang out.

If you are in the vacinity of this spot, stopping in is fun and there are cute little shops, but it's not worth a special trip. If you are staying at Carmel Mission Inn, The Made By Scratch restaurant is a good choice for breakfast, if you can find it tucked back behind the pizza place.

Once we figured out how to get into the parking lot, we really enjoyed exploring this multi-level center. Very unique architecture with many surprises around every corner. A combination of high-end shops and fun restaurants await you. Everything surrounds the lovely garden with trees and great sculptures to enjoy. Very relaxing - a real joy !!!
