My 12 year old son and I walked through here while exploring downtown one Friday afternoon. There was vendors on the sidewalk outside with some great locally made products (candles, jewelry, art, and more). Inside was a variety of high end shops. One gem (pun intended) was a rock and mineral shop. It was jam packed with a huge variety... More

I started with a sangria and appetizer at Carmel's on one corner of the Grove Arcade; then went inside to browse local jewelry artisans' very imaginative and creative designs. I selected a pair of pink renaissance glass drop earrings and a matching pendant which will go on a chain or cord. There is an estate jewelry and small art (pottery,... More

a magnificent space, the name 'arcade' is misleading, you think it's going to be a cheap place, but in fact it's so elegant with very fancy shops (and a good public restroom...) stop by and enjoy!

We visited on a late Sunday morning. It felt dark and either the places inside were closed or felt like not much was going on. It was more vibrant on the outside.

I am not sure that this place is THE destination, but the architecture is gorgeous and it is nice to see stores that are not chains. You don't need a lot of time though - it's pretty small. Looks like there would be a lot of fabulous outdoor dining around there as well, though we went early in the day... More

The architecture is amazing. Mr. Grove left a lot of interesting details. There are good shops inside, some high dollar, but also reasonable stores, like the yarn store and Mountain Made. Check out Page street is restaurant row at the Grove Arcade. Don't forget to check out the local art and crafters on the south side of the building, the... More

Glad we went because the building itself is beautiful, interesting, and a concept in shopping long gone. There were a few nice art shops but not really enough to spend a lot of time there. We were there at 10 AM so did not get to experience any of the dining. Seems there are multiple choices and maybe that's where... More

The Grove Arcade is in a beautiful, restored building. It's air conditioned and skylights let in lots of sunshine. The shops inside are top quality. There are outdoor kiosks for additional shopping. Fresh produce is available as well as a nice selection of plants. Other shops offer nice home furnishings and clothing.
