Another person complained about the slow service. That's certainly true, but the reason, as best I can determine, is that there is a constant stream of people ordering food. The cafe is adjacent to Northshire Books, and can be entered either from the store or from the street. There are only a few seats in the main space, where ordering... More

We were desperate for decent coffee, and so delighted to find this place with really good pastry as well. Located in a fantastic bookstore.

Nice, local café with good selection of coffee and friendly staff. If you are book nerd then there is a book store attached to grab a book, sip the coffee while you decided if it is worth buying. Books and coffee together can never get old.

We enjoyed our iced coffee lattes and snacks recently before we visited the attached Northshire Bookstore. Lots of delicious baked goods, sandwiches and soups to choose from. There is plenty of seating at tables and chairs where you can relax and enjoy your food and drink. The raspberry shortbread squares were especially yummy and gave us energy to then devote... More

Went for lunch -- break from shopping - had a delicious panini with turkey, bacon and cheese. It was generous and very tasty

Love, love, love, this place. Great soups, salads and sandwiches along with in house made baked goods. Everything is fresh and delicious. Combine this with the fact that you can walk directly into Northshire Bookstore and pure heaven is created.

This is a meeting place for locals. The sandwiches and soups are good, and the desserts are really good.

This café is actually a bookstore, café, and gift shop on 5 levels. We ate great, plentiful salads. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert. Their array of pastries is overwhelming.

This is a good little cafe located somewhat inside the Northshire Bookstore. I ordered the Three Little Pigs sandwich and it was excellent! My dad ordered the Catcher in the Rye and was not so lucky. He hated the sandwich and ended up just throwing it away. Depending on what you order, the food and drinks can either be excellent... More
