Village of Roslyn

Driving into the historic Village of Roslyn always feels so nostalgic. The village was settled in 1643, and officially named Roslyn in 1844. Today, Roslyn is a melding of past and present; the Roslyn Clock Tower, erected in 1895, stands at the center of town. Meanwhile, the village has become a popular destination for shopping and dining. The upscale boutiques, restaurants, shops and Roslyn’s old-world charm attract people from the Gold Coast and beyond. 

Shag: A favorite of Gold Coast fashionistas, Shag is known for its on-trend, hip clothing. The boutique offers rare styles from top designers, chosen by Shag’s very selective, fashion-forward owners. With such a homey and inviting atmosphere, you may be tempted to shop till you drop.


Yolo: Frozen yogurt is very trendy, and Roslyn has one of the best yogurt shops around. Yolo’s recipe is deliciously addictive, and luckily, the shop offers many healthy, “guilt-free” options. The salted caramel frozen yogurt is so popular, it’s often sold out by afternoon. You can also indulge in Yolo’s custom cakes and freshly-made gelato.

Revival: Revival is a shopping gem, offering fabulous vintage finds and rare designer pieces. This unique vintage boutique sells hard-to-find pre-owned designer clothing, shoes and accessories in great condition, including Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, and many more. It’s hard to leave without purchasing something. 

Transitions: Whether you’re looking for trendy, chic or sophisticated fashion, Transitions has it all. The stylish staff makes you feel at ease, and will assist you with finding the perfect outfit for any occasion.

Kyma: Kyma offers some of the most delicious Greek cuisine on the North Shore. The owners and chef have expertly created an incredible menu of mouth-watering Mediterranean specialties and Greek favorites. The friendly and hospitable staff makes the experience that much more memorable. Thursday nights at Kyma are especially popular, as the restaurant has live music in addition to fine-dining. The grilled octopus is a best-seller, as well as the fried zucchini. The restaurant is also known for its fresh fish specialties.

Bistro Citron: This Parisian-style eatery is a popular lunch locale. Enjoy French food in an elegant setting. The mussels are among the most popular dishes to order, or treat yourself to one of Bistro Citron’s signature French pastries or desserts.

La Bottega: While La Bottega is famous for its paninis, this rustic restaurant has an extensive menu of delicious Italian offerings, including fresh salads, antipasti, pasta, specialty pizzas, Italian main courses, and even a gluten-free menu. This high-quality restaurant is perfect for casual dining.
