Book Passages has been an impressive store for decades. The little cafe is unpredictable. Staff changes - menu changes...are frequent. it is good place to nurse a cuppa coffee...many bring lap tops and sit forever. It is sobering to see the Bookstore owner chastising staff....More

Nice place to meet a friend for coffee/tea and/or snack after a long day. I have eaten lunch there as well. Very basic food, but clean and good service. Very nice to see and chat over a cup of tea and a pastry.

We went to a book signing by Michael Connelly. We had dinner at the store before he came, and it was very good. We bought his new book, which he signed. It was great!

Sweet little cafe that gets better each few months. New Chef - broader menu; very popular place for writers and those attending the spectacular author events. Very Famous Bookstore since the 1970;s with the best staff and an owner who still doesn't realize that.
