“Next to the Carmel Mission Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

This is like a barnyard but nice with shops and restaurants. Not very big but it's got an Irish bar and a nice italian restaurant. Other places as well. Well worth visiting if your staying at the Mission Inn.

“Expecting more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

It took us a while just to find the coffee place. It is somewhat hidden in the back. There were not as many stores as we expected--more specialty shops but just not what we expected. Very few people were out, so it had a deserted feel, which was uncomfortable. Probably better in summer months.

“Take the good with the bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

I guess we got there a little too early as nothing was open. If you just want to get in some walking and climbing stairs for exercise, it is beautifully landscaped.

“was okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

We ate at Irish pub Flanagans one night and it was just okay. Nothing fancy but was inexpensive. Ate breakfast at From Scratch and it was excellent! Great breakfast skillet.

“Lots of shops but a little pricey!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

I live here in the area and it is not a place I shop for every day things. There are mostly unique shops that you can't find in usual shopping areas, but, if you like to explore and look for those unique places, this is the place.
