Easily the best bookstore/cafe experience that I have ever had. Although I normally prefer small, hole in the wall, second-hand bookstores, and this is exactly the opposite of that- I absolutely loved it. The design of the library as well as the decor and atmosphere made it feel much less like a department store styled bookstore, and like a public library. The staff were very friendly and...Read More
