This is a classic and one of the best bookstores / cafes left in this country. If you have a love for bookstores and the way books should lovingly be presented this is a must see.

If you are looking for a unique book store, then Books and Books is it. There are books and other publications here that you can not find anywhere else. Fun for all ages.

Needing a drink stop on our Big Bus tour yesterday, the guide pointed us to this place. Otherwise we might just have walked past it. A lovely large bookshop with various rooms, with an old time style. Interesting bits of artworks displayed throughout and a good selection of books and gifts. We were pleasantly surprised to be sat inside the... More

It's nice that depsite large chains little independent bookstores like Books and Books can still strive for existence and actually succeed. It's an oasis of calm and quiet and has some great exhibits, speakers, book signings and other events. I have been to a few evening events that were quite nice. There is a restaurant that you can eat at... More

You could find a lot of variation eventhough it's a small store. The staff were friendly and if you want you can buy a little something to eat while there.

An "institution" in the Gables and a nice place to hang out quietly and peacefully to enjoy a book, friendship and light food fare.

Great place to eat the food is awesome and you are inside a book store so you can browse and read while you are having lunch. he only reason I didn't give it a 5 start is because the service is slow at times. But this does not deter from the good meal.

I support independent book stores, but I do not support bad food. We ate lunch here after buying some books and we found the iced tea to be bland and the food to be generic.

The atmosphere at Books n Books is truly what makes me a loyal customer. It is a great place to browse for books because there are many seating options. There is outdoor and indoor seating for the cafe. They also hold organized book signings, which are a joy to attend. The location is around Miracle Mile, a popular strip in... More
