A very beautiful street that takes you back in time. Every building is truly unique, and I would highly recommend it for everyone who enjoys taking a stroll and checking out some amazing architecture. A must see in New Haven (in my humble opinion).

The Yale Art Gallery and the British Art Center, a good bookstore/café, a bunch of pretty good restaurants, two good jewelers and some eclectic clothing stores - there's enough to keep you busy for a whole day on just a few short blocks.

You will enjoy strolling, but even more so, you will enjoy all of the wonderful eating spots, stop into any and you will be happy.

There are lots of restaurants and cute boutique shops along Chapel Street. There is also a convenient movie theatre - Bow Tie. You do need to be careful - lots of pandering in this area, which surprised us.

Lots of creative shops along at least the 1100 block of Chapel. My teen daughter loves it too because she takes a summer course called Explo at Yale and has fallen in love with the city I was born in.

I happen to enjoy Atticus bookstore/ restaurant for a cup of soup or good sandwich or pastry. Bread is excellent and they have a fresh takeout sandwiches during lunch, all in the... More
