    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.

    I love bookstores, but I find this one hard to navigate and the employees rude.

    Use your Gives Back card to get discounts at the bookstore and the Bronte Bistro and support local nonprofits at the same time.

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

    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.

    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.
