“Prospect Bar and Grill...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

...was a highlight of our stroll along Prospect Street. While walking by we heard some great acoustic guitar coming from above, found the escalator up and enjoyed a Sunday Funday with Misdirection on April 29, 2012. Beautiful view of the ocean and fun staff.

“Public Restrooms Available at these 3 Shops!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

Many shops don't have public restrooms, and if you have someone that needs to go, find these shops and enjoy what they have to offer as well. GIRARD STREET: Waricks is a GREAT place: lots of stationary, travel items, books, jewelry, and 1 toilet...Across the street is the Anthenium (a music library). Admission is free, and the restroom has 2-3 stalls, but you'll want to spend some time here since there are only 11(?) Antheniums in the world so I was told. PROSPECT STREET: the La Jolla Financial Building (parking Structure) 2nd floor has a restroom but there are no signs indicating that. When you exit the elevator, go right then left, and you'll see the door with a restroom sign on it. It's rough out there people.

“Many no name stores selling junk. Similar to flea market”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

Many no name stores selling junk. Similar to flea market. It is barely worth driving thru. Seeing the Ferrari dealer is nice.

Other than that it is an inconvenient path from the highway to the beach

“Anything and everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

High and low prices (one particularly cheap shop full of good stuff , cannot remember name), beautiful stuff also in numerous galleries and jewelleries, some over the board, too chichi and in bad taste, the south side of Prospect restaurants are the best.
