I have been here many times in the past and revisited just a week ago. I think it is a gem and a must visit. Happily the last group of kitties had found new homes. I can't wait for the new ones to arrive. The coffee is great, the atmosphere is welcoming and the books are amazing. Hope you get to enjoy it as much as I did. Nice too that you can also take Spanish classes there. Great diversification. 2 thumbs up

Lovely spot for a coffee and book browsing! I could have spent hours hunting through the shelves, I had a pile in my arms before I knew it! Highly recommend.

Such a cozy and bright space. The owner was friendly and warm. All the cats were adopted the day I went, so it was a special day for the big friendly puppy who was usually not allowed in the store.
