  • Good collection... resembles old library
  • Lovely collection of books ... One of the few Indian shops featured in Bob Eckstein 's 'Footnotes from the world's greatest bookstores '. Had an interesting conversation with the owners ... Was extra happy as I managed to find a copy of Reflections in water - an anthology on Goa edited by Jerry Pinto
  • A must visit place in goa for readers. Hosts a small but curated collection of both new and old, covering almost all major topics and a friendly and helpful staff. Calm and serene environment to sit and read peacefully. Second books are very cheap.
  • Great collection.. it is a must visit for me when I am in Goa. The newly opened cafe is modest, options are less and the pricing is erratic.. but the food is freshly cooked and the ambience is great!
  • A chic ,trendy One of a kind Boutique book shop In Goa. It's no ordinary book shop. The owner is a passionate about books and it shows from her speech. Thursday night cine club and book club are some of the other activities which are taken up by this institution.
