We like it very much. The Village used to be very small 30 years ago, with only several shops and a huge supermarket. But then it's been transformed to a very trendy place. There are more and more restaurants and shops. You may get all you need here---dining, shopping, spa, hairdos, books and DVDs, etc. QFC is still here, serving even better food and my favorite bagel cheese spread (almond with honey). The Starbucks is always crowded though. The Italian restaurant (forget its name) in the middle is excellent. Try it. We also enjoy the sandwich place (Specialty?), especially their Mediterenian sandwich. The only regret is that the French bakery I used to visit (which had been there for at least 30 years) is gone now.
