“Lots of Shopping, Lots of Dining”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I have enjoyed this renovated area many times and always find something new. Boutique shopping and a variety of dining options make this a go-to place with friends and family.

“Innovative”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Brightleaf Square is a redone tobacco warehouse area that now has stores and restaurants in it. It has some turnover and the locals have not really patronized it.

This is two 2 story tobacco warehouses over 100 years old, check out the giant wooden beams and supports. Completely redone inside, very clean and stylish. with a wide variety of dining and other stores.

“Your Average Downtown Area”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Brightleaf Square is cute and convenient but not much different than any downtown shopping area that can be found in most cities. There are various restaurants and shopping for employees of local businesses with convenient parking located just across the street.

“Small but fun and exciting Square”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

There's always something going on here. A nice variety of restaurants also with patios for outside eating and some select and attractive shops. Although you can spend hours in the shops, it would still be an even better place to go to if they extended the square and had more things "to do", i.e. why not have art galleries, bookstore, more restaurants, hairdresser, gourmet food stuff, select wine store, movie theater - would be a fabulous place to spend the day - something for everyone.
