It is more common on campuses these days to see coffee shop and bookstore combinations, but the experience at Spiral Press is one of the best! I spent an entire afternoon at the lovely Northshire Bookstore. About halfway through my rambles in the store, I...More

I really wish the food was better here - and unless you want salad and are GF forget finding anything satisfying. There is a great place to sit in the cafe which makes even the mediocre coffee worth it.

If there were a Cracker Barrel you'd think you were back 100 years! Cafe is above the (best -rated) bookstore in all of New England. Order downstairs and the servers bring your tray up to you. Long refectory-like tables abound so it is a great...More

We have eaten here a few times for snacks while visiting one of my favorite independent bookstores. This was the first time for breakfast before heading home. Great coffee, the morning glory muffin was delicious and made a great leftover snack a few hours into...More
