    For parents whose kids love Lego, there's a blocks/bricks table on the 2nd floor for kids to enjoy. A good way for parents to kick back while their kids play.

    This is a great place to meet friends, buy my book, 'Seriously… I'm Kidding,' & do dramatic readings of Danielle Steele novels on the escalator. If you don't have time for all three, just buy my book.

    Sad that bookstores are a dying breed. Love shopping for new books & this is the best bookstore in Santa Monica. Staff is great too. Go buy a book & keep these guys in business. Recommended.
