Thank you to our wonderful merchants with whom we share St. Armands Key and whose contributions help make this web site possible.
St. Armands residents have chosen this island for many reasons, not least of which is the ability to walk to all of the wonderful shops and eateries on the Circle. We recognize that when these businesses thrive, so does our residential experience. We support our local businesses, we shop and dine with them, and we enthusiastically hope for their success.

Description of St. Armands from a 1995-era SACA pamphlet:

Set amidst a tropical paradise, St. Armands is an enchanting circle of fine shops and gourmet restaurants. Renowned as a marketplace with a continental flavor, it is a charming and graceful synthesis of past and present. Lush tropical plantings, courtyards and patios, antique statuary and contemporary architectural design skillfully contribute to an international atmosphere of friendly warmth, enduring elegance, and timeless style. Relax in the restaurants, explore the shops--from trinkets to treasures, gourmet snacks to candlelit feasts, you'll find it all on St. Armands Circle.
