Fantastic book store and coffee shop; great talks
Jan 2020 • Couples
Visited to hear an author speak about newly published book (about female domestic terrorists in the 1980’s). Great venue and experience. The audience questions were interesting, intelligent, and inquisitive. Overall a very enjoyable afternoon and experience. The bookstore is world renowned for hosting famous and significant authors and speakers. Definitely worth the trip up Connecticut Ave to visit this iconic bookstore. Makes one feel hopeful about the future of the world, politics, the US, and retails stores.

Family coffee shop with coffee and tea along with bakery options that also includes a book store with a great selection of children’s and adult choices. There is an area for computers and plug in available.

iconic bookstore with a cafe
Jun 2019 • Friends
if you like browsing in bookstores politics and prose should be on your radar on a visit to washington, dc. excellent collection of books and nice book-related merchandise. although i've never been to any, i know that p and p hosts interesting talks/literary events and also has a few bookclubs going. the cafe downstairs has good coffee, tea, snacks and light meals. it's the perfect place to meet friends or to retire to, computer or book in hand, for a happy hour or three. for me, no visit to DC, however short, is complete without a visit to politics and prose.

For kids of all ages

Pure joy is the face of a four and a half year old girl as she gets to the bottom of the staircase and sees a big room full of books and other things. A very friendly and helpful staff person asks what she might be looking for and she says "butterflies." Quickly five butterfly books are identified and shown to her. Next she asks for zoos and there were other suggestions as well as a puzzle and book about visiting a zoo. After ample time with books and chatting with other kids, she asked to go to The Den for something to drink and maybe some yogurt. On the way she spied cool socks she and her year and a half old sister had received for the holidays. While she lives in Seattle, she feels very much at home at P&P when she visits DC. And after P&P, she wanted to go directly to Sugar Fox for ice cream.
For others, The Den has a new coffee roaster, Vigilante Coffee Company. The coffee is better than ever.
Also, the author events over the spring and into June have been wonderful. P&P is an exceptional and extraordinary community resource on so many levels (and now in several locations across the city).

Great book store!
Apr 2019 • Business
So, I went in looking for a book. I left with five books. Not only did they have a great selection of books, they have a cool feature where they have book writers come and speak on a daily basis.

If you're just visiting D.C., I think this place is a little far out. But it really is a great place.

Food and drink were good. Quality barista made a good chai tea latte. I paired it with salmon and dill. My daughter had grilled cheese tomato pesto sandwich and a chocolate chip cookie

I had an hour unexpectedly free today and went to pick up some books I had ordered. I thought I'd have lunch and saw Peanut Stew...I was a little worried it would be thick and sweet abut not at all. Tomatoey and filled with sweetpotatoes...Delicious!

I love bookstores
Sep 2018 • Friends
Whenever I come to Washington DC I ask my friend to bring me here. I always by several books from the sale section to cart back on the plane with me. There is also a coffee cafe which I would love to stop in one time but there's always someone in our group doesn't like book stores and doesn't want to stay. This is not one of those giant chain stores. We don't have a wonderful bookstore like this in our town or I would spend a lot of time drinking espressos and reading. It might be out of the way if you are staying downtown but it's worth a trip if you are in love with books and book stores!
