Not for the window shopper

Wheelock has seen better days. It used to be a nice weekend hangout for avid readers who would browse the magazines and latest bestsellers in the sprawling Borders bookstore. Of course, only browsing and not buying led to Borders’ eventual closure; now there is no compelling reason to visit Wheelock.

To its credit, Wheelock has a fair selection of excellent eateries such as Sun with Moon Japanese restaurant and Cedele’s Bakery Depot (which I’ve reviewed too). There are a few classic lifestyle stores, such as Crumpler, Birkenstock and Dr. Martens. Not forgetting the EpiCentre for all your Mac needs.

Still, the shopping area is limited at Wheelock and the building designed in such a way that discourages the lazy Sunday window shopper. In my opinion, Wheelock is a good place for your specific needs and not for casual browsing.
