This is a place to spend time reading excerpts of books that you put on your wish list. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. A great selection of history and children's books

This is an old fashioned bookstore, with lots of books, diverse selections, and many author events held regularly. I found suitable books for my nieces and interesting ones for my husband. It feels so refreshing to be in a bookstore like this, one that understands books and readers.

This place is kind of an "anchor store" in the Fairhaven shopping district. It's cheerful. Staff is pleasant. Interesting selection of books and much more atmospheric than your local mall B&N. Cafe on the uper level is sunny, has great views and is a nice place to have a cup of tea, look at the water, and page through the... More

Fairhaven is so fortunate to have this bookstore. It is a place where you could spend hours. The knowledgable booksellers won't steer you wrong.

I am a sucker for used books. I found one of the best used bookstores that I have seen in a long time. The staff encourages you to pull up a chair and read to your hearts content. A great time especially when it is raining. Fits in nicely to the Fairhaven District

I could live in a store like this. An old fashioned independent book store with knowledgeable clerks and informative displays. They even have chairs scattered around so you can peruse before you choose. And, there's a discount cart so you can mix the value from new fresh to old and cherished. And of course, my favorite bookstores also have local... More

This little nook resides in an upstairs corner of a fabulous independent book shop. Windows overlook Fairhaven's Village Green and the water beyond ~ a sublime view, and a perfect place to enjoy a good meal and glass of wine or cup of coffee. Owner and chef Charles embraces the local, sustainable food movement, as evidenced by his menu. This... More

We have had lunch here on many occasions over the past few years and liked our selections. This recent visit found that the menu was limited. The pulled pork sandwich had a very bad flavor and tasted like it had been frozen too long and thawed. Do not recommend this choice.
