  • Nice bookstore with good bargains. Great choice of books and office supplies. Clothing is quite expensive. There is a coffee shop inside and several around the corner. 
  • Had chicken wrap - tasted old. Served on a filthy tray. Had to sit beside stack of water bottles. Coffee not bad and staff very friendly, but I won't be back as sandwich was dreadful. 
  • A magical place, amazing. Immediately I want to return to college years. Nice atmosphere, an ideal place to explore. Uniquely to visit.

  • This is a beautiful bookstore with a great selection. There are lots of local books and Boston/Harvard novelty items. It is a bit of a tourist hot spot so it can be a little overwhelming, but it is still a great place to buy Harvard gear and souvenirs. Clean public restrooms are located up on the third floor and there is a nice coffee shop on the second.
  • Snobby and absolutely inappropriate staff (especially the old lady with short grey hair and glasses, works in the smaller section of the Coop where the alley leads to Church St). Treats you like an idiot if you ask her anything. She talks to you as if she's better than you and gives you a face expression of disgust. Wow, apparently not a place where you can ask a question. Someone please teach her how to be professional or let her go. Will never go back there.
  • My favorite bookstore in the metro. They have a huge selection spread out over 4 floors. Plenty of quiet places to read and take refuge from the craziness of the square.
  • A decent book store although you can always find better prices for text books online. Mostly this is the place tourists can buy Harvard gear.
  • A beautiful bookstore with decent selection of stationary as well as books of all kinds.
