  • I love Chaucers. I always find an interesting book, and leave with a lot more than I planned on! The staff can help you find anything and the store is stocked with great books.  more »
  • We ALWAYS buy our books and gifts at Chaucers. We believe that purchasing online puts small businesses out of business. BOOKS are considered in our family as "sacred ground" and I wouldn't dream of...  more »
  • I love book stores. I know we can just order from Amazon, but there isn't anything like browsing a book store in person. This is a good one.  more »

  • The best bookstore in Santa Barbara. Great collection of new and old releases- and a lovely helpful staff. Floor to ceiling books, who wouldn't love!
  • The best bookstore in SB hands down since I was a little kid. The employees know their info. I love it there!
  • This is a crown jewel of SB. We love this bookstore so much. How to begin... The customer service is outstanding. The book selection is incredible for a store of this size. The books are organized well. And it's great for all ages! In fact, I co-wrote this review with my 9-year-old, who's a huge fan of Chaucer's.
  • What a lovely well-stocked bookstore! We love to find local stores such as this, as we consider them national treasures. We walked out with some great books to read.
  • I love having a bookstore like Chaucer's in town. I love to browse the aisles and see the books that have been selected by the long term staff who love literature and books and non fiction and all the things we can learn about the world we live in. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Any day that I stop at Chaucer's I always find a book I need and then love. Usually more than one. It's a happy place.
