1. Town of East Aurora

The Village of East Aurora is full of shops, cafes, restaurants and even some entertainment options. If you’re headed here for a day of shopping, we recommend starting with some caffeine at Taste Bistro & Coffee Bar or Elm Street Bakery. Once you have the energy to shop, head to The Rusty Button Shop for a variety of artisan goods, Blush Boutique for clothing, The Plant Shack for some greenery, and Fowler’s for a sweet treat. Stick around after a day of shopping to grab some wings and hang out at Bar Bill Tavern or margaritas at Left Coast Taco. This is only a small portion of what East Aurora has to offer.

4. Elmwood Village

If you’re looking for walkability with a variety of dining and shopping options, this is it. For starters, we recommend grabbing a drink at Tipico Coffee, Overwinter Coffee or Caffe Aroma. Then, depending on the time of year, the Elmwood Village Farmers Market (open Saturdays, May-November) is a great way to find produce and unique items from local vendors. Outside of the market, you can find clothing and accessories at Half & Half Boutique, books at Talking Leaves, home decor at Ró Home Shop and The Monocle, and a huge selection of vinyl at Revolver Records. As for food, some great options in the area are Breezy Burrito Bar, Cole’s, and Jack Rabbit. Just like the other towns, there’s a lot more to see here than just this list, so be sure to head over to Elmwood and see for yourself!
