This was a fun place to shop and have a coffee break! The traffic though.. whoa. Hard to find a parking place. Once that was taken care of, I love the outdoor type of malls so much better than the inside ones. If you do too, you will love all of the shops there!

So many stores, multiple coffee shops and restaurants - this is a shoppers dream with so many stores in one area! Stroll the outside area and window shop, stop in for a cupcake, or take the kids to the playground inside the village to run off some steam. Go over to the bookstore and then grab lunch or dinner at... More

Truly the best shopping experience anywhere in the Northwest. Open air, clean, filled with flowers and fountains it just makes you smile. Easy to park, great restaurant choices, boutique shops and friendly, it's the happiest place in the world. Sorry Disneyland.

Don't miss Fran's Chocolates if you want to have a measuring stick for remarkable chocolate AND a cappuccino (yep, you don't have to settle for S****S) I loved the landscaping, ambience, and selection.

U Village, as it is affectionately known locally, defies the rainy local weather Seattle image. It is the location of a wide variety of shops and restaurants serving the the mid to upper income neighborhoods and University of Washington area. The first bricks and mortar store of the Amazon Company is located there, as well as the usual mix of... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this place because we wanted to eat at Din Tai Fung (which by the way is a must) and this place was insanely awesome. It was beautifully landscaped and was so peaceful to walk around or people watch. We went to the Amazon Bookstore which was cool, but the best part was Molly Moon's... More

Fun place that has grown from the million years ago that when I attended the UW. There are nice shops, something for just about everybody and lots of places to eat. There are loads of places to sit and rest and people watch. It was a nice Spring day when we went so it was nice to sit outside and... More
