This is a well designed shopping center, with a range of interesting specialty shops, as well as pleasant garden landscaping.

One of my favourite stores here is the Sur La Table kitchen shop- there's always something interesting!

Also, you can have a light meal or coffe, sitting eithevinside or outside.

It's a pleasant place to visit, whether you're doing window shopping or serious retail therapy!

There is a unique charm to this shopping plaza. There are independent retailers offering a variety of things you do not see everyday. Poke your nose in and look around -you will find some unusual things at these small stores. But there are also chain retailers like J. Crew, Anthropologie, Tommy Bahama and J Jill. It's a nice mix of shops.

We enjoy Carmel and like to wander around the Plaza. Many different shops to some fine restaurants and a great little coffee shop - good strong coffee. Nice shop for kitchen wares, nice cheese shop to sample. A usual stop when we go to Carmel/Monterey.

Both my teen and toddler daughters and I loved this plaza - it's an outdoor plaza that is well designed and has beautiful flowers and spots to stop and sit. The stores are really great, too! I would (and did) go back!!

Great little restaurants and shops full of unique items. The shops are like little cottages and flowers are everywhere. Oe of the cutest little towns I've been too in California. A bit pricey though.
