Fodor's Review

This independent bookstore started in the early 1970s and has gathered a cult following over the years. The shop stocks a wide range of fiction, cooking and history books as well as design studies, philosophy tomes, and travelogues. There are old-fashioned leather chairs around the shop to browse in comfort.
