Spiral Press Cafe is a fun internet cafe adjacent to Northshire Bookstore. Nice menu, especially the selection of teas, coffees and hot beverages. Lots of desserts and snacks, and some great sandwiches and salads.

The staff of the cafe were very polite and helpful. Couple that with a great cup of coffee and you have a nice experience upstairs in the sitting area. They had run out of real cups and I frowned so one of the staff went...More

A great place for good coffee and muffins or a sandwich when you need to come up for air from perusing the books at the Northshire Bookstore!

Why interrupt a day at the bookstore (for that is what you can spend here) with lunch at restaurant that takes one away from one's perusing? The Spiral Press offers an outstanding set of choices for a small kitchen in this great bookstore. Fortunately, there...More
