“Could be better. Calgary needs a better city planner”
Reviewed 12 April 2013

Too bad this area is more developed. It could be great, but it is just okay with several shops failing and little atmosphere. Enough with the patchouili and crystal shops!

“The highest concentration of coffee shops”
Reviewed 14 March 2013

A good mix of high qulity restaurants, coffee shops and even an old style harware store amongst kitchy clothing and smoke shops. Too bad it lacks parking space.

“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".
