“to sum-up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

First place to visit in Tbilisi. Books, maps and booklets with all the necessary information for your trip are available here. Coffee-house is apart from bookstore. There you can find the best coffee and tea in Tbilisi. Some snacks are also available. WiFi is free, but as for computer connected with network, price is 4 GEL per 1 hour. Location is the central part of Tbilisi. Service is good (staff is English&Russian-speaking). Environment is great (plenty of books). Place is non-smoking.

“Books and Cafe and English in Tbilisi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

I have been visiting this bookstore since my first trip in 2004. Usually has a good selection in English of new books on Georgia. They also have a good selection of fiction and classics. A new addition is a small used book section, always welcome. I enjoyed food and coffee during my last trip. The place for English books in Tbilisi. A little pricey but if you run out of books to read, this is it!

“Expat Bookstore and Coffee Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

Great place to go for English-language books, including kids' books. Frequently used as a meeting spot for expats, including the International Women's Association (IWA), which is very active in Tbilisi.

Excellent selection of books on Georgia and the region.

Good coffee and basic cafe food--muffins, quiches, etc.

Nice, clean bathrooms!
