Then I discovered this fabulous bookshop! I found it in the middle of winter, on a rainy afternoon-evening. With it's cafe serving coffee, cake and food into the evening - when it's cold and/or wet outside, this is the place to be. Oh, and you might even pickup a book, have a read, possibly buy a book or two - or even just strike up a conversation with someone around you.
The best place to sit is the comfy lounge inside - but it's only by a stroke of luck that you'll get that spot as everyone seems to want it.
If it's not winter - you can sit outside - but my personal favourite is to pick a spot at one of the long tables, where you can sit, surrounded by books to choose from and enjoy a Campos coffee & a sticky date pudding cake (although I don't think these are on the menu now - might be a winter thing). Lots of other things on the menu to try - and a great place to wile away some time.
