What a wonderful bookstore with an impressive section! Our reason for visiting this bookstore was not really for the books, but for the High Tea on the 5th floor, otherwise known as the 5th View. My party of 4 all ordered our teas and each couple got a tray of sandwiches, pastries and desserts.

The staff are great, ask them for a book and they'll look it up for you or if you need a suggestion they'll find you what you want.

I'm an avid reader and love coming here for books that I can't find anywhere else!more
