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

I've always loved the Moravian Book Shop, and now there's a cafe inside. Vegan and GF offerings; soups of the day (for example: GF cauliflower, GF parsnip and apple), paninis (about $8 each), salads (about $8 each)...you can get a small soup and salad and a great cup of coffee--For a wonderful Sunday, catch a sermon and sing a hymn...

If you don't like the Moravian Book Shop, you probably don't like to leave your home! This amazing store has not only an excellent book store with a wide ranging selection of books (and author's regularly visit to give talks and sign books), but it also has a wonderful Christmas selection, a great kitchen and gadgets area, a fabulous array...

- This is classified as a restaurant, and there is a café, but we did not eat here, nor do you have to by any means, it is several shops all together, and a café as well. We happen to park right next to the entrance, or we probably would have never gone in, but a bird house in the... More

Guests from out of town love the bookstore and we have a great time showing it to them. There is so much to look at. I love that it has the feel of an "old" store and is not slick like a department store. It's sort of rambling and around the corner is always another surprise. There are so many... More
