Thomas who took over the Book Shop eatery has had it for only 6 months. He is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and taught at Northampton Community... More

The Moravian Book Shop is an absolutely delightful place to both shop and eat. It is located on Main Street right in the heart of the historic district of Bethlehem, across the street from the Hotel Bethlehem. The store is arranged in three distinct sections. On the south (right) side is the home accents section. You can find dinnerware, throw... More

We decided to walk around the town of Bethlehem right before Christmas. As we walked by the book store we realized that we had never been in it however have heard so much about it. It is truly an amazing sight when you walk in and try to take in everything around you. What beautiful items they have to offer.... More

My family of six ate here for a late lunch during the week of Christmas. We were one of only a few people dining in the cafe, but our order was mixed up and took quite a while to arrive at our table. The food, acorn squash soup; kale, sausage, and white bean soup; and chicken paninis were fine, but... More

Started out as a bookstore but expanded into multiple stores with a fantastic selection of gift and Christmas items, plus a small cafe and food shop. A must see for anyone who is in Bethlehem.

The shop is deceptively large with items from pastries, to Christmas items, gifts and most of all books. Loved they have authors coming in for book signings and while I was there, Santa made an appearance. Can't go to Bethlehem and not enter this wonderful wonderland.

This shop seems to expand every year. There is so much to see. It can be crowded at times but I always go in and look around whenever in Bethlehem. I have not eaten the food only purchased candy. The selection of items is varied. If you want to get out of the cold and walk around, this is the... More
