I have been to B&B numerous times over the years. When my daughter was younger we used to bring her here to rummage through their great children's section. There is nothing quite like bookstores for kids to grow up in. Even now that she is grown and gone I still find myself wandering around the shelves from time to time... More

it must be the best book store in Miami and probably Florida or Southeast. this place even has a bar in the courtyard! incredible art, architecture and fashion books. But they also have well displayed and selected Fiction and other books. If you like books and reading, must come into Books & Books. Lectures and author signings as well.

Books and Books is a wonderful place to not only buy books but meet friends for a delicious meal and see many wonder authors conduct book readings. Mitch Kaplan the owner of Books and Books has been recognized as being one of the best in the business. Not to be missed.

Was there for an author's presentation on his travel book. The store has a coffee house/wine bar feel to it rather than a Barnes and Noble big box feel. Reminds me a bit of some of the great bookstores years past in Ojai, California (a place noted for its bookstores and a hangout for the old Hollywood crowd). If you... More

Books & Books elevates your reading experiences. Mitchell Kaplan has created a place where readers and writers come together to share their knowledge. The book store has a great staff who make readers, even those who stumble on the store for the first time, feel they are home. Having authors describe their works and lives makes the books come alive... More

It includes a nice restaurant with live music in the court yard, numerous author events, knowledgeable staff, comfortable surroundings, and impressive collections in a range of areas, from art and architecture through fiction to zen and other religions/philosophies. It's weak in... More
