An ideal place to come for a meal and/or drinks. Variety of food to choose from and certain places have a good selection of beers on tap.

A nice place to walk on a sunny day. Restaurant shopping as you go of course! Not as much fun if there is a cold wind.

I don't think this is a question. Fact is, I have walked there both day and night and never experienced any issues. No "roughsleepers", no loitering, or potsmoking "disadvantaged" people. Perhaps it's a misconception but... More
