Wonderful bookstore! The staff is so friendly and helpful! Great selection of books. It also has a cafe with delicious salads, soups, sandwiches and desserts. In the warmer months you can sit outside. Also have a gift shop. Always go there first to search for some gift because they have a great selection of gifts.

The entire second floor is dedicated to children's books, and both kids and adults alike are sure to be entranced by the selection of stories there. The bookstore's cafe has a... More
