“Dog friendly and People friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

You can bring your dog right in! Free ice cream if you buy a book! Pretty rooms filled floor-to-ceiling with great books. Super friendly servers offering all sorts of wine and beer, cheese, charcuterie, pastries, chocolates and other treats. Magazines and newspapers to peruse while you sip and snack. I love this place. I have never seen anything like it where dogs were permitted. It's like being in a fancy Parisian salon with super friendly servers and delicious decadent treats. I would come here all the time if I lived here. Open 11a-11p every day.

“Cozy, fun place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

Live music, comfy sofas and chairs. Wine, champagne or a nice cup of tea while you enjoy the very friendly cozy atmosphere, good service, friendly people of the dog and human variety. Fun place to spend time and make new friends.

“Books, Coffee, Champagne...fantastic combination!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

I can't say enough great things about The Book Exchange in the Grove Arcade in downtown Asheville. We started here on our food tour of downtown and found the champagne and appetizers were delicious. What elevates this establishment to the level of being a book lover's dream, is the maze of shelves of neatly categorized books with wonderfully cozy seating areas scattered throughout. This multilevel bookstore feels like a classic library from a historic mansion. We were so taken with the place, we returned for after dinner coffee and chocolates. Lastly, when we discovered that they welcome well-behaved dogs, we became even more ardent fans.
