There is a great variety of shops and eating places, plus the Post Office which has a gold post box celebrating Carl Hester's gold medal in the Olympics for dressage.

“Character”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

The staff in the shops and restaurants were all so friendly and helpful. The post office stores were amazing, we even managed to buy a pair of wellie boots each when the weather turned bad!

“Sark's 'High Street'”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

It's the main street of Sark, but it's not very long. There are food shops, gift shops and cafes on the Avenue. I would particularly recommend the bakery (boulangerie) at the far end. The brownies are to die for.
Beware, everything shuts at 4pm. We tried to get a coffee before we went down to the harbour to catch the 5.30pm boat, but all the cafes on The Avenue were shut.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

A quaint little path, lined with shops and little baskets in the windows, what they call in sark the high street of the island, although far from the concrete jungle that can be found in most normal towns! Lovely shops and one of the main links to the other parts of the islands. Be sure to pick up a souvenir from one of the shops, before you head for the boat.
