Spent the afternoon going through all of the cute shops in the Armands Circle. There is a variety of shops that include clothes, food, knick knacks, etc. There a few restaurants to have lunch or dinner. The shops tend to be a little pricey.

This is a beautiful collection of shops and restaurants dotted around the famous circle. A great place to find a quirky gift but bring cash......beautiful things don't come cheap!! Well worth a visit.

We spent 3 hours one day & 6 hours the next day shopping in St. Armand's circle. Well known shops in addition to local shops made this a very unique and popular shopping experience. Plenty of places to eat and lots of scenic venues to also sit and "people watch" when you're tired.

Nice place to walk around & spend the afternoon people watching. Prices are not reasonable & are down right funny. Not worth the time or trouble to go there

Pretty circle but too expensive for me. High end boutique style shops and restaurants. No cheap souvenir stores in St. Armands.

I have been to St. Armands Circle many times through the years. It's a wonderful place to visit and shop, well known for its beauty and elegant surroundings. There are many fine restaurants, my two favorites being the "Columbia" serving the best in Spanish food; their Mojito is wonderful and the "Crab & Fin" which serves a delicious crab cake... More

Make sure that what you buy is what you want.....they do not tell you, but if you read your receipt (and very few people do), they do not give you a REFUND! They only give you store credit up to 30 days of return.
