Wonderful food stalls, Great restaurants. Lively atmosphere. Lots of families. This is a great place to meet friends, people watch, or have a bit of "me" time with a good cup of coffee. Highly recommended!

Great area to walk and dine. Vulkan Neighbourhood offers modern yet stylish architecture. It is one of the city "cool places" that anyone (even conservative traditionalists) could and would enjoy.
