“Nice Walk”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Cute area to walk....wonderful variety of shops and restaurants at every price range. Ample public parking (if you get there early enough) but also street parking for the area.

St. Armands has it all. Good food, a wide variety of shopping experiences and the beach is just a short walk a way.

“A Little Bit Of Everything!1”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We've actually come to St. Armand's Circle even when we weren't staying in Sarasota. From the quaint little shops, the great restaurants, there is something for everyone here! Favorite place to eat? Columbia's which has some of the best Cuban food going. And you can't go without going to Scoop Daddy's for ice cream!

“Must Visit”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

A trip to Sarasota is not complete without a visit to St. Armands. It is a great place to walk around and look at all the shops. Maybe stop for ice cream at one of the 5 shops. Or get some fudge at Kilwin's. There are so many unique shops to browse in. Most of the restaurants are upscale, but excellent. Columbia is some of the best Cuban food around and reasonable at lunch. Don't let the crowded street-side parking scare you; there are large parking lots behind the stores.
