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. The store is really cool and is the oldest...More

The Moravian Bookstore has anchored Main Street, Bethlehem, forever, or so it seems. It sells a wide variety of stuff, from placemats to chocolates. It even sells books and has quite a good selection in fact. It's almost impossible to resist wandering in. If you...More

a visit here was highly recommended...we went with visiting family at Christmas time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The bookstore (3 connected stores) is endless and there wasn't enough time to see everything, but then again, we'll be returning often. Children were welcomed as well as...More
