I love supporting independent bookstores but was disappointed here today. First they require sanitizer at the door, but they were using scented sanitizer which was so strong I got a headache. Second..... more

Beautiful. Love the aesthetic and brilliant selection. Books, cards, maps, journals, calendars…is it paper? They have it here :p also cute gifts, toys, trinkets. The kids area is cute with a little play area and there’s even a coffee shop about 20ft away. Super busy Cap Hill area and limited paid street parking outside but you could easily spend an hour here. Check it out :)
The most amazing book store. I was in Heaven. Could spend an entire day (or longer!) there! The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The cafe coffee and baked goods are delicious. Can’t say enough good things about this iconic bookstore. Must visit if you are in the area.
Wonderful bookstore in the neighborhood with fun read selections from the staff and a little cafe inside. The cafe inside is very cute and a great space to read or studs. There are many seats in the space, but keep in mind it can quickly get crowed on weekends. It’s a great spot to come by on a weekend morning for a cup of coffee, then walk around the store for new reads.
I was visiting Seattle last spring and I fell in love instantly with this independent bookstore! It is warm, cozy, and ‘personal’ bookstore. I can spend hours wandering around to discover books here. I personally liked the review tags by the staffs, smart idea and helpful. They also highlights local/northwest authors which is very cool. All in all, it got everything I dream on a bookstore!
such a gem — i absolutely loved it here! hands down one of my favorite stops in seattle and it’s truly hard to find a bookstore with such a comprehensive and diverse collection. the staff go out of their way to provide meaningful recommendations & descriptions for their picks; and there’s a huge selection of bargain books that are super affordable! there’s also a cafe inside which makes it the perfect place to buy a book and enjoy it with a nice cup of coffee.
