“No parking and expensive parking..”
Reviewed 8 February 2013

“Overrated”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

This area is terribly overrated as a destination in for a city the size of Calgary. I have been here many times and the shops are unintersting, not to mention terrible parking. It is presented as a destination area in Calgary, but reminds me more of being in the "hood".

“I live nearby and avoid it.”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

Lousy parking and overpriced. Most of the cafes are run down and seedy. Okay if you are a granola crunching hippy.

“Could be so much more”
Reviewed 27 December 2012

Parking issues: expensive, if you can find a spot, and likely to get a ticket (patrolling ticket cops) if you are late back.
Shops open late in the morning, shop keepers don't seem to keen to welcome morning customers. Shopkeeper surly when asked about sales (e.g. Silla)
Restaurants aren't ready even if doors are open to admit customers (e.g. Maurya)
