“Great food!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

We ate here for lunch and it was quite busy and for good reason. The food was very fresh and delicious ranging from salads, sandwiches, soups, pastries, and much more. I ordered the turkey club and black bean soup - both were fresh and unreal tasting. Great location right by Yale!

“Great salads for lunch”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We ate here twice in the week we are at Yale for a conference. Loved the Roasted pear salad. The bread was excellent as well. Lunch was busy but we recieved our food quickly and service was good. The collection of books was great as well!

“Quality food offerings in bookstore”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

Nicely prepared, thoughtful food items ranging from astonishing french toast for breakfast, to various delightful sandwiches. Location and prices are great. Right on the main street next to the Yale Art Museum etc.

“Definitely a place to linger....”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

This bookshop has a great range of titles. Central location in New Haven. Great to linger and check out the books - a good practice to support 'real' book stores like this to keep them alive. The light snacks are fresh and nutritious and good coffee too. We enjoyed our late supper of hot cocoa (hot chocolate) with whipped cream, and fresh carrot carrot with cream cheese icing. Lovely!

“The last of a dying breed”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

Decent food, such as good bread, good chili, good soup, plus books all around you. What could be bad? I'm surprised Atticus survives at all in this grim climate of e-books and Amazon muscle. Only Barnes & Noble that runs the Yale Bookstore soldiers on, too. Spend some time and money here to help it survive; it needs all the help it can get.
