This is the nicest little shop in Seaport Village. Extensive variety of books and unusual gifts. Also a great selection of unusual greeting cards. The staff are very helpful. Within the bookshop is the most delicious coffee shop with great coffee and cold drinks and the cakes are really tasty. A wonderful place to visit and and great prices.

Great selection of books and nice areas in store to relax for a while and read/ talk with friends. Can also play a game of checkers or Chinese checkers on their two game boards. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Had lots of fun.

First, the selection of books is wonderful. Not huge, but carefully selected, along with best-sellers. The people who work here are universally nice and very helpful. Also, great coffee concoctions (or plain Joe) and you can sit outside and people watch.

First came here over 25 years ago when I was new to San Diego. It was really special to me then - quirky, interesting and different. Nowadays you find the coffee shop/books combination all over the world, but I was glad of Upstart Crow in the olden days. I keep an Upstart Crow figure in my office in England and my daughters have now been introduced to this place because once upon a time, it made me happy!
Walk along the marina from Downtown San Diego - it's amazing.
