We were happy to find the natural cosmetic shop lush. Not big but best quality products. Didn't find another special things there

Nice walking around with alot of shops and eateries. Parking lot located very close. It's really beautiful at Christmas with lovely decorations. I would definitely recommend coming around Christmas.

This small mall is a U-shaped passageway which is lined with more up-market shops and eateries. It is a pleasant stroll on a warm day. It has parking at the rear and some nice seating areas to rest or watch the passing parade.

We had a pleasant brunch and the food was good. However it would have been nice to have a mimosa, but they don't serve alcohol.

Le Petite Valentien is our favorite restaurant in the Arcade. Waterstone's is a great gallery. A pleasant place to stroll at anytime.

The shopping center is more of a beautiful sight than a great shopping experience located in mid-town Santa Barbara.
