A brilliant little bookstore with incredibly unique and lovely books. Best ice cream book collection I've seen anywhere. Entire collections of certain authors and an incredibly array of cards and gifts. You'll definitely leave with a book or something, it's just one of those stores.

I like how well-organized the store is and that there’s a lot of travel and geography books on display. Prices are comparable to many bookstores in the city.
