Nice place to buy a book or for having a salad or coffee or wine in its open and chill cafeteria. They usually have writers signing books and talks. Nice place at Coral Gables

Nice corner in Coral Gables where you can either buy a book, grab a bite or relax during the weekend night with a glass of wine, a beer and live jazz.

This is a beautiful book store, much bigger than you would expect with floor to ceiling wooden shelves. Quite lovely. Appears to have a very good selection of books, including signed copies. Also seems to regularly have events such as book signings and live music....More
