Robert Winfield built the stately Spanish Colonial-style arcade that houses shops and eateries. Each arch is like a picture frame for each of the stores. You will notice that each shop or eatery is unique. Not two are a like. Lots of wonderful aromas filters onto the sidewalk as you stroll along the under the archways.
