This side street has great boutique shops, book stores restaurants and even Gelato. Friendly shopkeepers/artisans, not pushy hawkers.

Loafer’s Corner, popularly known as Princess Street, is an ideal place in Kochi, where an amalgamation of old and new times can be seen. One of the oldest streets in Fort Kochi, it is dotted with European-style houses, lending it an old-world feel. This vibrant street is the hangout place for social party-loving locals of the area.

With Keralas problematic licensing laws,it was a revelation to discover you can easily buy good tonic here. There are shops selling good merchandise here and it is well worth a visit.Post office is close by too

On a sunday evening the place had a desereted look.Mostly foreigners hanging around. The shops didn't have much to offer.Mostly selling duplicate antics and junk jewellery.There are lot of so called friendly guys trying to squeeze out something from you while pretending to help you.A weird place- nothing to see.
