  • This book store is absolutely gorgeous and charming. They have a great selection of books, not isles and isles of books to confuse you. The store interior is absolutely gorgeous and the staff and are so chilled. I actually bought the first book I saw (Michelle Obama's book, obviously) but I mean the rest of the books were amazing. I went on a Sunday so it was nice and chilled, got parking quickly too! I love books and I love this book shop.
  • Went for a book launch and ended up buying a book. Lovely big bookstore with a wide variety of authors and genres. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Good for getting away from the noise and bustle, having a quick cup of coffee and a standard in books for the connoisseur. Though I miss the savoury muffins they used to serve there.
  • You are my favourite bookstore. Lots of variety and always going the extra mile for your clients. Really appreciate it !!
  • Wonderful book store, so much better than the big corporates. Get on their mailing list for book launches
