Bratenahl Park is a favorite for birders. We like to go for walks, picnics, and to escape the summer heat. It's usually 5-10 degrees colder there by the lake than more inland neighborhoods.

Beautiful indoor market frequented by locals and tourists. Get your fresh meat, fish, cheese, and pasta here. Skip the grocery section, you'll find more affordable and fresher items elsewhere. When you get hungry, there's a falafel place (Maha's falafel) in one corner of the market that's delicious and filling. They also have breakfast wraps.

Van Aken District is a new upscale apartment and window-shopping complex. Of note, Brassica is worth going to - it's similar in concept to Chipotle, but a bit higher end and with falafels/mediterranean. I usually go here after climbing at Shaker Rocks (kitty corner from Van Aken district).

I was not able to specifically pin restaurants and shops so I will write my rec's here: - Park to Shop - East Asian grocer that will have almost all of your east asian cooking needs - Koko Bakery - east asian bakery for cakes, sweet buns, and boba. Our family gets birthday cakes here every year. - Dagu Rice Noodle - new Chinese noodle place. big portions! - Szechuan Gourmet - good for groups. Good mix of American-Chinese and Chinese-Chinese dishes. Spiciness can be adjusted - LJ Shanghai - Best soup dumpling place, good for takeout as well. The other menu items are so-so in my opinion.
