i am not sure why the marfa book company shows up on trip advisor's list of restaurants in marfa because there is certainly no food offered here. i am under the impression that business owners in marfa are very, very kind people and someone told me that no coffee/snacks are offered here because it would possibly detract from other local businesses. regardless of whether that is true, don't let it dissuade you from coming here.
this is an amazing bookstore for such a small town. as expected, there is a strong showing by art/architecture books. not the place to go if you are looking for the latest romance novels or travel books, but certainly a place to go if you are looking for something eclectic or at all related to the art world. there is a beautiful light-filled gallery in the back with rotating exhibits. it is very obvious that the town adores this book and deservedly so.
