This is an English language bookstore with a collection that would be impressive in a small bookstore in the U.S. They have various sections, including one for children.

We stumbled on this place by chance and always enjoying bookshops decided to go in. Lovely little place with books you can pick up to browse or to buy, good wifi if you want to just read the newspaper online, and good hot drinks and lift snacks!

And... More

There are a couple of bargains to be had, but mostly they sell for on or above the RRP. I had the... More

I happened to stumble upon this book store when I was walking back to my hostel. It has a large selection of English books. The coffee was amazing. This place is so warm and inviting when you walk I the door. I met so many nice people here from all around the world.
