It was a very cute place to visit! However from what we could tell there was only a few stores to shop at. The little Dipper inside for dinner, had small proportions. We also went to the a&r craft place and had lots of fun there

Brightleaf is adorable. There are some great restaurants and cute shops. Note that most of the shops are closed on Sundays, or have limited hours.

My family farm (bull city farm) has started selling at the Durham Roots Market at Brightleaf from 9-12 on Saturdays and I am extremely impressed with the welcom we got! Not only was Brightleaf kind enough to let us have the market there, but all the businesses in and around came to see us and were incredibly sweet! Its the most welcome I've ever felt from a Market venue and I've sold at quite a few!! 10/10 experience 😊

I love this shopping area. It’s so quaint and the people are so friendly. Mt Fuji is one of the standouts.

Very clean, went to Cloud brewery with a large group. Staff was helpful and got to use the sectioned off room. There was a wide selection of beers and a self service wall.

Beautiful restored warehouse/manufacturing building! This is a wonderful place to visit, shop, and eat. There are many little shops, art studios, restaurants and breweries among other businesses that you can find in here. Come, explore and discover new places to enjoy!

Super cool and hip updated downtown location. And check out Cloud Brewery when there. Excellent food, great service, super setting and a great menu to go with it.

The old buildings with an urban atmosphere have a unique artistic conception. If you are lucky enough to travel to the city of DURHAM, besides visiting the American Tobacco Campus, you may wish to come here to have a look.

Historic looking place. Interesting shops in there. I don't know how much longer it will last since everyone is buying durham up to make apartments though. Better go while you can!

Nice square that is lit by strings of lights and has road signs pointing to stores. It's neat that they kept the old tobacco buildings

Fun square to visit. Free parking lot. Some places were closed, unfortunately. A well-maintained area and appeared family friendly.

So sad that Morgan Imports is closing. They have been a true gem for Durham since 1969. So grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Morgan for their many contributions to our community.

There are some very unique restaurants and stores in Brightleaf Square with good variety. I will say that the diversity of stores is fairly good although they can be over priced depending on which store you're going to. Can't beat though that there is Market and Otis with a very large patio, Saint James with amazing seafood, Rose's with great eats and treats, Clouds Brewing, etc etc. Parking is available in 2 large lots.

Brightleaf square is a must visit location in downtown Durham. The historic nature of the property is worthwhile in itself, nevertheless the great businesses within. Parking across Main Street is the best option, as street parking is very limited and the lot across is free.
