Too bad this area is more developed. It could be great, but it is just okay with several shops failing and little atmosphere. Enough with the patchouili and crystal shops!

A good mix of high qulity restaurants, coffee shops and even an old style harware store amongst kitchy clothing and smoke shops. Too bad it lacks parking space.

This area is terribly overrated as a destination in for a city the size of Calgary. I have been here many times and the shops are unintersting, not to mention terrible parking. It is presented as a destination area in Calgary, but reminds me more of being in the "hood".
