    The concept is same as a bookstore has reading space and coffeeshops. However it is just not just a bookstore, you would easily feel the Harvard atmosphere from there and books choices are so great.

    The coop cafe serves cheesecakes from Cheesecake Factory! The third floor is quiet and has a lot of study tables- buy yours a dessert and spend a few quiet hours here- it'll be a perfect afternoon :)

    Coffee shop on the second floor serves Starbucks, and I've heard they stock cake from the Cheesecake Factory too. Three floors of books as well! And far less busy than the Starbucks across the street.

    A respectably big book store staffed with real, live, helpful people who always have excellent recommendations. Beautiful woodwork, great selection, and a wonderful kids section downstairs.

    Nab a comfy corner chair and stay a while! Though often crowded with Harvard students, the bookstore and café have a lot to offer customers, ranging from a delicious sandwich menu to free WiFi. Read more

    Book lover or not, this is a paradise. You may find books at lower prices on Amazon. But if you are thinking prices then you shouldn't really visit this place. Smell of books wins you over.

    Remember, it's the "coupe," not the "co-op". Founded in 1882 by a group of Harvard students, the Coop is one of the country's largest bookstores. Read more

    While it feels like a big box bookstore, this is an old institution that is worth visiting. Remember who this bookstore serves and then you'll realize how unique it's offerings can be.

    Same as every single university bookstore. It's expensive and they sell that topically things like hats, sweaters, and branded stuff of Harvard university

    The Coop (The Harvard/MIT Cooperative Society) was founded in 1882 by a group of students, as a cooperative which would provide the academic and professional community with a place to buy merchandise.

    Great shop, let down by poor customer service. Staff chatting to one another while serving and ramming $230 worth of purchases into a small bag.

    If it was still just the Harvard COOP & not part of Barnes & noble, I'd be happier.
