“Fun for all ages”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

An enjoyable part of town. Shops, bars, restaurants, cafes for all ages and lifestyles. Be sure to look at the architecture on the side streets and take a stroll on Bidwell and Chapin parkways.

“They made it nice”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Lots of nice locally owned shops and restaurants. Shops seem to close early, I thought was kind of strange before the holidays. It's one of my favorite parts of Buffalo. Parking kind of stinks. Have to park on a side street somewhere.

“An Authentic Experience!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

No big box stores or chain restaurants here. Great shops and hometown restaurants. There is a farmers market on the weekends on Bidwell Parkway in the summer and great Christmas shopping in the winter. This is the place to go if you want a truly unique and thoughtful gift for your loved one or yourself. This is probably THE best strip in Buffalo and for good reason. I always look forward to stopping by on my way home from work and on the weekend. They even have the best pet supply store in the area. There is truly something for everyone.

“Great shopping and restaurants within walking distance”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

This area is truly a class act. Many boutiques with quality, quirky merchandise, lots of artist made items, great variety in dining in all price ranges, and one of the region's best Toy Store, the Tree House.
