Not just for coffee; we were hungry; but, didn't want a full meal, so we stopped in real quick for some soup. It tasted fresh-made; was served hot; and, hit the spot!

My daughter and her best friend wanted coffee and smoothies, after my wife and I had spent a protracted amount of time at Cooper's Hawk. They had been out walking the mall; and, wanted to cool off.

You can kill a half of a day if you are a book worm. They have Starbucks and a bathroom near by. Up and down the isles you can occupy yourself and read untill closing time.

Its a book store! It has books! You also have your quality free wifi in the store with your coffee shop. Many books, magazines, calendars to choose from in all age groups. Again its a Barnes & Noble, what is not to like :)

I love shopping at B&N and then being able to stop at the cafe after for a drink or snack. I always stop here when shopping with my young son. It is his special treat to stop and have a fresh chocolate chip cookie while reading his new book. The cafe is always clean and restrooms are located right there.

Nook lovers, you have a treasure in the people manning the Nook counter at the Alafaya store. The cafe is small, but run well, and bathrooms are always clean.
