Really enjoyed a very quick stopover at this very nice independent bookstore. Great selection of books with lots of cards for recommendations from the staff which is always helpful. Cafe upstairs. Wish we had more time to explore - recommended.

Cute bookshop with a nice childten’s selection. The cafe was an awesome bonus and the workers were super friendly. It was all just a bit cramped and we wish that we could have gotten a teacher discount on the books we bought for our classrooms.

An awesome little store. Great selection, helpful staff. It's crowded, but the little cards on the shelves (employee reviews) are insightful and interesting. Coffee's good, too.
