A great choice of books, ranging from latest novels, cooking, gardening, travel. A small cafe at the back of the shop and an area outside which is nice in the hot months.

We visited here for morning tea and coffee and to read weekend papers. Bought some books as well. Can have the tea/coffee in courtyard which was very peaceful. Repeated visit and never disappointed. Wonderfully friendly owner.
