    Grab a book, staff will help you choose, and read on one of their fold down tables with a cannele and coffee. Cutest book-themed decor.

  • MrsCorkster

    Superb curation of new and notable fiction. Download the Goodreads app so you can scan titles and add them to your list. Good place to visit when you feel your Kindle is just not tactile enough.

    Psss if they're serving pie at the cafe, especially cobbler, don't pass on it. Ask them to warm it up for you.
