Our hop on hop off stops here for 10 or so minutes. It was well presented but ridiculously overpriced, I don't think anyone from our bus bought anything.

I stop here because of a 10min stop of hop on hop off buses. It has interesting things but too expensive. However if you are lover of homemade food you could find it interesting.
