Nice shopping area on the the opposite side(away from downtown Carmel)of HWY 1. Several different restaurants that are not pretentious like most of the ones in downtown Carmel. The Lafayette Bakery has really good food. Downstairs there is the From Scratch restaurant which I just saw on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives-after we got home so it's on the list for... More

Candy store is nice, appear to make their own. If you stop here, also go to The Crossroads, they have an incredible stationary store, good consignment store, more of a non-tourist destination with an Ace Hardware.

Lots of cool shops to see and just window shop. Some nice eating places. Great pizza. Nothing frozen there; all fresh ingredients. Good service, fair beer selection, but definitely go in hungry cause you won't leave that way! Highly recommend it.

There are an incredible dollhouse museum that's donation only and several good restaurants at the Barnyard. Of course there are fancy clothing stores and artsy stuff too.

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...
