This is a beautiful bookstore, laid out in a linear fashion with wonderful little nooks and crannies. Very attractive seasonal decor. Has a nice selection on Moravian history. Worth a trip!

Moravian Book Shop has a great blend of merchandise, from great framed photo of the Bethlehem area, Christmas decorations and items from household to beauty to books. It's makes for a great shopping experience.

We brought friends along this time to visit the bookstore. This is much more than a bookstore. I purchased Bethlehem stars for Christmas as well as having glass of mead that they have brewed. My husband found books to buy as did our friends. It is centrally located and a nice place to rest between our tours in town.

This is having me review this as a restaurant so it's not quite accurate. There is a little place to get pastries or something like that although it was closed at the time I went here.
