My favorite indie ever!

My favorite indie ever! Sundays are my favorite days to go. It's packed with interesting people and even better food. Try the butternut squash ravioli after you find something to read!

Best store for airplane books!

Yep, I try to come here every time I'm in town. I get a great meal with my friends & family

... and I ALWAYS walk out with a great book to carry with me for the flight home!

A tip to the wise: A stroll amongst the surrounding indie shops in the neighborhood helps you walk off the great cocktail drinks as well.

Love at first site!

I love this place. My husband introduced me to the bookstore when we worked at NASA and it was the only place that had good food after 10pm. Then after dinner there was always the search for some new and interesting book that I never found in the local Borders.

This is a brilliant bookstore!

Any idiot can face a crisis, it's the day-to-day living that wears you out.
