Retail outlets with a difference in an historic precinct - from food to fashion and home wares to gifts.

“Cute, but pricey!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We walked through early on a weekday (8:00) and there were no lines. It was nice, but probably not worth going out of your way for it.

“lovely arcade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Worth a visit for the spice shop and the Haighs Chocolate store. The tea room is meant to be very good, if you like English style high tea, but there was such a long line at it that I didnt get to try it.
