  • A really wonderful bookstore. Great prices. Excellent children's section. Cool art for sale from local artists. 
  • Our next destination was Green Apple Books on Clement St. I try to visit a bookstore anywhere we go and I had added this stop early on. I later found a Groupon for $20 for $40, a rarity for a bookstor...  more »
  • My favorite section is the used or recently read one. All the latest books at half price. Next door are vinyls , CDs , DVDs , paperbacks...the works . Not to be missed.

  • Always a great place. Very funky, with a good local feel. Well curated selection of books, covering every topic you may need. They have free book bins outside, that turn over very fast. They also sell vinyl. You can custom order things, and they come quickly (if in stock of course). They even buy some books, mainly to supplement their inventory.
  • Whenever my family visits a city, whether in this country or abroad, we visit its bookstores. We've been to many countries over the world. It's sad and happy at the same time, that there is no bookstores like Green Apple. I am glad that there is a Green Apple in our hometown San Francisco. Once my daughter bought a used cookbook by Alice Waters for under $20. When she brought it home and opened it and found that, to her delight, it was signed by the author!
  • A SF classic. Winding shelves full of used books, dotted with note cards full of recommendations from the staff. They have good prices, a huge selection and the staff always has a recommendation on the tip of their tongue.
  • Awesome local bookstore. Great selection and knowledgeable staff! A must visit if in the area.
  • Best bookstore in the city. The look and feel is authentic, very different from your large retailers, making every visit an experience worth having.
