Harry Potter belongs to JK Rowling and we are in no way using this for money. All original characters, applications, graphics, etc, belong to the Rewind members. Sidebar images & header were created exclusively for Rewind by ELLE! Stealing anything that belongs to a Rewinder is a bad idea.

There are several different cafes in Diagon Alley, filling anyones craving. If you search enough you're sure to find pizza, hamburgers, chinese, or any foreign food. There is, of course, english food as well.
We all scream for ice cream? Of course we do! Florean Fortescue's ice cream parlor has any flavor you can think of, and some you can't. It has outdoor tables for nice summer days, and indoor tables for the weird customers who like to have ice cream in the winter.
Flourish and Blotts have at least five hundred books. Floor to ceiling walls of them surround the entire store. Most of the books are pretty interesting; but be careful some scream, bite, and even curse. They often have book signings, and you can also preorder books and have them delivered by mail. Apparently loads of fights have broken out in the store, because the advertisement on the front window for a new assistant manager requires that they be good at breaking up fights. Books causing fights? Maybe.
Another one of those 'kids' favorites. A joke shop that has a wide variety of gag items; no heat fireworks, trick mirrors, the works. If you know the shop owner well enough, you can get lucky and get a discount on the widely popular items.
Basically where everyone stores their money. The most secure wizarding bank around. You can open a bank account, or just switch your money from muggle to wizarding. Careful though, the goblins aren't too welcoming.
Madam Malkins Robes seems to be the best place to buy your robes, around. Just about everyone shops here, so it won't be very abnormal for you to run into a classmate... or an enemy. Though she's a little strict when it comes to moving... or speaking while she's taking your measurements. You can buy several different kinds of robes; spangled, self-ironing, beautifying, slimming, fattening, lengthening, and temperature-adjusting. just ask and you will receive.
The place that any 'clean' person would want to avoid. And by clean I mean good. This side of Diagon Alley is the... ghetto of the place. Populated by strange shops, hexes, and purebloods, it's not the place to go if you're on a simple shopping trip.
The Leaky Cauldron is a dirty inn, bar, and restaurant. I wouldn't recommend staying there, unless you have nowhere else to go. It gets normal customers, but be careful; you never know if you're sharing the table with a death eater.
This company sells, what else, beautifying potions. For the wizard or witch with an unruly acne problem, or an large ugly mole. Freckle removers, and the like. If you're dissatisfied with your appearance, Madam Primpernelle is the person to visit.
This is a very crowded, noisy, and dirty store. Not dirty because of the owners laziness, but dirty because the owner unfortunately owns a store stuffed to the brim with animals. You can get advice on your animal here, as well as rat tonic, food, etc. There are loads of pets for sale here, including, but not limited to, toads, firecrabs, nufflers, steelers, rabbits, cats, rats, owls, ravens, puffskiens, and loads more.
Ollivanders is a must visit for new wizards/witches. Replace your broken wand here, or get a brand new one. As long as you can keep Ollivanders attention long enough, you may learn some new things about your wand.
You can get anything related to quidditch here. Gloves, cloaks, brooms, boots, and loads of other stuff. The items may be a little highly priced. So you've gotta pay to fly, but it's definitely worth it.
Slugs & Jitters is an apothecary where you can get any potion making item you need. You need dragon spit? You got it. You don't want to spend too much time in here however; the entire store smells like rotton eggs. It's sometimes vomit-inducing.
Scribbulus Everchanging Inks sells, what else, everchanging inks! It also has quills, stationary, and different color inks. If you want to irritate your teacher with an invisible ink, this is the place to get it.
Tidderwinks is a thrift store. It sells everything. If you're looking for the cheapest robes, books, pets, quills around, then this is the place to look. They may be second hand, but who cares. You're saving galleons, man!
This is the most upscale robe shop in Diagon Alley. The prices are as high as it's sales. Which is high. Most purebloods shop here instead of visiting Madam Malkin's. It's rare that people make regular visits here however; the prices are that high.
