Lots of shops, quaint and franchise, little eats and big restaruants, and lots of people. A great place to watch and shop. Especially the Brattle Flower Shop - pots full of fresh flowers at a reasonable price. My favorite place to buy flowers.

This Square offers a few good restaurants and shops. It is next door to Harvard Square so you can walk there and look at some traditional and upscale houses In Cambridge. They also have a theater.
