    For second hand books, the price you pay for the quality of some books is just not worth it. The cafe courtyard looks amazing though.

    Outside court yard area is rare to find in a cafe that also serves alcohol.

    Somehow the coffee tastes better when surrounded by books. Lunch and breakfast are not bad either, especially in the courtyard out the back.
