Nice setting. Variety of shops

The Barnyard is a beautiful setting with quite a few shops. Business was slow the day we were there. There is a fantastic bakery at one end of the outdoor "mall." Don't miss it.

This is a great collection of shops and restaurants with always well-manicured and blooming landscaping to enjoy while strolling around.

This place was dead - probably due to the limited shopping. Many stores have gone out of business. What's left is a bit of a snore. Not much variety. But, they do have the miniature museum there and the sun always shines here, which cannot be said for foggy Ocean Ave.

Great food, bakery and nice shops. Small complex, but worth the time to stop and check out. Lots of parking, that's a plus in Carmel.

A few cute spots to eat lunch and dinner. Shopping was ok but not great, a few cute stores for trinkets and things.

Looks like a commercial area at first but really cosy and cute once you get into it. Good choice of restaurants and bars and some lovely little shops to browse and all very reasonably priced

I've got to join so many others in saying I STILL MISS the old THUNDERBIRD BOOKSHOP, such a delightful relaxing place to spend an afternoon. With that said, The ORIGINAL Barnyard is still my favorite place to shop while in Carmel. Beautiful gardens and walkways to set an atmosphere of peace and tranquility, lovely shops that carry quality merchandise, art... More
