Elmwood Village is home to a number of very fine shops where we never fail to find at least one treasure. We find the quality quite high and the prices not bad. In general, the shop personnel have been quite friendly and helpful. There are a great number of interesting & ethnic restaurants as well.

Loved the shopping and eateries. I especially liked the food co-op. You can find almost anything on Elmwood.

Friendly, welcoming, walkable, and interesting are the first words that pop into my head when I think of the Elmwood Village. Within a mile you can shop at the Lexington Real Foods Co-op (everyone is welcome, member , or not); you can browse the multitude of shops including gourmet, apparel, and jewelry; you can step inside the Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian...

This street has lots of neat little shops and restaurants. My wife bought some funky and unique shoes, and I got some good cheap eats. We were both happy.

This is my favorite area of Buffalo. It's a vibrant, walkable area with shops, restaurants, and many people out enjoying themselves. Plenty of places to people watch, grab a coffee, lunch, shop at small boutiques, bookstores and more! The Elmwood Bidwell Farmer's Market is the best market in WNY!

I always visit when I am in Buffalo. This area is what Buffalo was a century ago, long before the bad PR and negative comments from people who never visited. Honestly one of the nicest areas of any city in have visited anywhere in the world. Great restaurants and shopping and beautiful big old homes well cared for.

If you like sidewalk restaurants and cafe's, unique gift shops, plenty of people, farmers markets and people watching you will like the village.

Elmwood Village is a nice little area that boasts shops, restaurants, bars, and local "hang-outs." Buffalo was hit hard by economic recession, but they are reviving, and restaurants such as Papaya will help to ensure its economic boost.
