Why locals love it

The shop is simply overflowing with books, because half of the shop is devoted to a high quality coffee and wine shop, which holds frequent author readings and live lit events. The Kates, a well-loved performance group in the city, perform here with frequency. Local authors often have signed books on hand in the store as well.

Why you should visit it

Indulge in a glass of wine or a gluten-free cupcake while perusing the stacks. The shop has a great selection of children's literature and YA, along with a ton of genre fiction. It's also located directly across from the "Square," which is a frequent spot for artist performances.

Special tip

Merz Apothecary, Gene's Sausage Shop, and Planet Access are also not to be missed on this strip!
