I went in yesterday for the first time in quite a while. I don't drink coffee so the front part doesn't much interest me. The gift and book store part was really pathetic. It looks like they're closing out the books and magazines. Shelves are really sparse. And not many gifts. I guess they can't compete with BN and online sales.
Best People Watching Spot on Cedar Springs Road.
This is probably the largest community friendly bookstore remaining in the nation. The coffee shop is a great meeting place for coffee and desserts. Lots of seating inside and out on the patio. Free Wi-Fi too.
