  • Nice place to stop by especially during the cold weather. Lots of shops with regional items made by artisanal artist. There are a couple of restaurants there as well but when I went most of them were under renovation so I was unable to delve in deeper. Perhaps next time but definitely worth a visit
  • Cool shopping spot. Some of the Canadian branded items get repetitive - e.g. Maple cookies in every store - but overall a nice spot to visit.
