    I love this bookstore but I wish they would alphabetize the books by author consistently. Took forever to find A Game of Thrones.

    The kids section is great but there's only one train table now so avoid after school hours and weekends if your tot wants to play.

    Davis-Kidd has the best children's area out of all the bookstores in Memphis. A definite way to stimulate your child when it's too hot or cold to go outside.

    The tomato-blue cheese soup at Brontë Bistro is excellent. I also really like the grilled ham-and-Brie sandwich.

    Check out the huge selection of Memphis-themed books near the front of the store. There's a decent selection of books on local history, music, cooking and more.
