The meal was delectable and the spices in the Bloody Mary with olives just right! The poached eggs were cooked to perfection and beautifully seasoned.

Nice small shopping center with a European setting. Nice independent shops and cafes-' not usual shops and cafes you find in a big mall. Easy and convenient parking.

La Fayette Village is easy to find - when you get close you’ll see a small Eiffel tower to mark the place. There are many interesting shops and restaurants. In pleasant weather it is comfortable to sit outside and sometimes they have events going on at certain times of the year. We prefer it when it’s a little quieter before schools get out as sometimes in summer it gets packed with families and small kids running around all over the place. If you’ve come for a quiet romantic evening for 2 this is not the place during those times. It’s nice though because the shops are different to the usual mall/strip mall shops, the spice shop especially smells delightful. We have found staff to be pleasant in most places. The coffee shop is lovely although sometimes a little slow in serving, but I find that to be the case with a lot of coffee shops. We’ve enjoyed the food in all the restaurants there and the crepes in Simply Crepes are delicious!

If you happen to be close by, then its worth visiting. Its unique and has some French charm. We came to Lafayette village as a destination for the day. Not that kind of place. Some places to eat. A limited choice of shopping. The coffee shop was pleasant. The store owners should review their stategic plan. Or its just a bunch of buildings that might be a little French.

I have always liked Lafayette Village, but last night we discovered a new (to us) gem, Southern Craft Butchers. We didn't know they served food, but went in, and oh, my goodness, I had the best hamburger I have ever had. If you don't go, you will have denied yourself a real experience. The young owner/butcher is a real delight and very passionate about what he and his partners are doing to provide quality meat to the community. Can't wait to go back.

A fine variety of shopping and dining experiences unique to this location. Plenty of parking spots and a fine way to spend an afternoon or evening!

While in the Raleigh Area, you must visit this cute little cluster of stores that resemble a French Type Plaza. The aromas coming from the various restaurants were awesome. We visited the Olive Oil Shop and sampled some various seasoned oils with little pieces of french bread. We actually brought home several bottles of seasoned olive oil. Loved the Country Store with all kinds of items for sale. We even visited a bike shop where the knowledgeable owner was advising us on what kind of bike to purchase.

We've been here several times and haven't been disappointed yet. We sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly and efficient. My mixed drink was strong and tasty and they had a good coffee porter for my husband. The calamari was crisp with 2 good sauces. Our chopped salad was hearty with a light herb lemon vinaigrette. Our pizza was outstanding.

Lafayette Village is a fun place to visit with all the restaurants and shops. There have been some changes since my last review but most of the tenants are the same. There is a florist now; a pharmacy; a noodle restaurant, a juice bar; a blow out salon; an olive oil shop. So there is so much variety here if you are looking for that unique gift or a place to eat. I like that parking is around the perimeter and there is underground parking too. It is easy to walk around and directories to find what you are looking for too.
