  • One of the best bookstores in SoCal. It's not Powell's but it's a reader's dream in Pasadena. They often have author signings. There's coffee on premises, too. It's a beautiful space. Lots of staff recommendations, if that's your thing. It's a Pasadena treasure.
  • Best bookstore in California. If you have a bookstore in your dreams this is the real life version. "You've Got Mail"'s Shop Around the Corner but bigger, better, but just not going under !
  • Fun place to spend an inquisitive afternoon. The coffee shop has awful prices though.
  • One of the last independent bookstores. Was a favorite place to go as a child to explore the racks of books. Forty years later, I still love to visit.
  • Great selection of books, both international and local authors featured in store and at book signings.Staff picks are diverse and offer valuable insights into authors and new reads.
