R. Julia on Madison's adorable Main Street, and offers a huge selection of books, gifts, stationary and cards. They carry the latest bestsellers, along with reference, cookbooks, local items, and have an upstairs floor devoted to Children. They frequently have noted authors and celebrities in for signings, and also run summer camps and programs for children. The back of the store houses a great coffee house that also has sandwiches, soups and bakery items. The seating is limited, and it gets very busy, esp for lunch and brunch.
The prices are reasonable and the staff is very knowledgeable. Its a picture perfect store.
