This place has every store you can imagine. Lots of department stores, clothing stores and places to eat. Having a Stanford student, we needed sheets, towels, new sneakers, clothes, and even storage bins. It's all here.

I love coming here for my Stanford visits. It's a great place to pick up a quick bite or if you need to waste time between appointments. :) and most of the stores are doggy-friendly, which is so nice!

It was a great experience to see how beautiful the mall is now after all the renovations made. New stores were added and the gardens, restaurants and open spaces create a very enjoyable experience.
