Explore The Shops at Yale

An easy drive from The Mark Apartments is one of the area's premier shopping, dining, and entertainment destinations.

It's known as The Shops at Yale, and with more than sixty shops and award-winning restaurants, there is something for everyone.

Highlights include:

Atticus Bookstore Cafe

Atticus has been a New Haven institution since 1977. Originally just a bookstore, it expanded to include a cafe four years later as owner Charles Negaro wanted to start one similar to those he had visited during his travels to Europe. The large selection of books, knowledgeable staff, and delicious meals have customers coming back again and again.


CandiTopia is a charming candy store that embraces New Haven's sweet history as the birthplace of lollipops. Customers enjoy friendly service and a journey back in time as it offers nostalgic candies such as wax bottles, Mary Jane's, and Sugar Daddy's.


Winner of OpenTable's Diners' Choice award in 2016, Pacifico offers a lively two-story space with an open kitchen that allows guests to watch the chefs as they're hard at work. Colombian-born chef/owner Palomino draws from his childhood in Bogota to create the restaurant's distinct menu, and meals include Crispy Whole Mediterranean Sea Bass, Polla al Grill, and Ravioli Vegetariano.

Union League Cafe

The Union League Cafe captures the charm of a Parisian brasserie. Its hearth fire is always lit to welcome guests, and the chefs combine French classical traditions with a more contemporary approach to flavors, textures, and native fresh ingredients. Menu options include Espaden Basquaise, Canard au Poivre, and Ravioles a la Brousse.
