We visited the Doughnut Friar, the Toy Store and browsed a few other shops. The fountain is nice and seating is good. One of the few places that have seating with shade. Hard to access because of traffic but worth the stop.

The stores are overpriced, but there are some specialty/cute stores in it. I love the cobblestone path’s and overall feel of the village.

I really enjoyed the shops they offered more than the basic tourist type items that the other stores had. More unique and one of a kind items and not really bad prices.
