  • With very good reason. It's not just a great little indie bookstore in a world where many haven't survived the arrival of big box retail, it's a vital force in the community. They don't just sell book...  more »

  • The bookstore is lovely, with bright and vibrant Knick knacks lining the bookshelves to accent the books themselves. The books may be a bit overpriced, but then the experience may as well factor into the cost. The cafe portion in the upstairs is simply fantastic. Wonderful service and delightful other patrons make the little restaurant feel fantastically cozy. This is a place to calmly rest on a light spring day.
  • This is literally favorite book store in the whole wide world. It is just COMFORTABLE, and it is a celebration of books. Something about how they showcase books -- they always have a few NYT bestsellers on display, they have a rotating stock of my favorite oldies but goodies, and most importantly, they have great staff picks that are called out. Add to that a cozy cafe, and wonderful staff that are quick to help you find a thing you're looking for, or leave you alone to just browse and read for hours, and it feels like a cozy second home. Always happy to drop a few dollars here in the hopes that this place is around well beyond my time on this planet.
  • This bookstore has such a welcoming environment. The staff is always friendly and willing to give you recommendations. The selection of books is also very good. If you are hungry you can go to the top floor to order a sandwich, scone, or cake. Wash it down with a mocha or some tea and you have got yourself a pretty good day.
  • Village Books is very nice place to go to check out books. Has three stories with sit down area to eat and have a coffee. From top level are nice views. It's very easy to spent one or two hours here and leave with book in hand.
  • No wonder this book store is so popular. It has 3 floors of books! It is cozy and even has a little cafe upstairs. As we like to support local businesses, it is the bookstore to support. The staff is very helpful and friendly too.
