When I have to go downtown to run errands, I always find myself back here to look around for something new or to get a suggestion from the staff about something new to try. Even if they do not have the item in stock, they can usually get it for you in a reasonable amount of time. The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed, and I find myself spending hours there even if I hadn't planned to when I came in.
The food is excellent and they are more than accomodating with requests. My son's birthday party was the first one held there and it is something that he and everyone else still rave about even though it's been 3 years ago now. Best bookstore in town in my opinion.
Pros: Great atmosphere, comfortable, great staff
Cons: Sometimes limited selection
