You might get a taste of the discourteous and rude service San Francisco is increasingly becoming known for. There's a male 6ft staff who just ruined my impressions of their reviews upon my visit today. The less you interact with service staff, the better off...More

An absolute must for shopping in SF. Great atmosphere, great choice from comic books to classics, cool prices, as they have a lot of second-hand. Hard to leave this place.

No, this is not a reincarnation of Larry McMurtry's 1970's era Georgetown bookstore. But it is to the Bay Area what Booked Up was to Washingtonians nearly a half century ago...namely an eclectic mix of books cleverly packaged in a century old retail building. And...More

I make it back to Green Apple whenever I get to SF. New and used books, music and magazines, you know a book shop. I always find more than I thought and buy more than I should. Keep this place alive please.
