“Amazing independent book store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

The atmosphere at Books n Books is truly what makes me a loyal customer. It is a great place to browse for books because there are many seating options. There is outdoor and indoor seating for the cafe. They also hold organized book signings, which are a joy to attend. The location is around Miracle Mile, a popular strip in Coral Gables.

“Don't miss this Unique Book Store and Cafe.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2014

What a wonderful place to meet friends, have a cup of espresso, and purchase unique books! Couldn't find anything to dislike. There was outdoor seating available but we sat inside. We arrived before the cafe opened but they offered to make us coffees and enjoy some breakfast cake which we did while we read the paper and looked around. The art collection of books is awesome. If you need a really nice Coffee Table Book or a gift- this is where you will find it.

“Classic independent book store experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Love this place for its independent book store experience. One of the few successful independent book stores left. There is a Barnes and Noble right now the street but this place has a good following. Constant lectures and book signings keep people coming back.
Clearly B&N is cheaper but Books and Books provides a grew experience. A cafe was recently added and this is a nice touch.

“Great book store”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Tucked in the back of an area off the shopping area is this great book store which is wonderfully stocked with not only great books, but cards and other gift items.

“Still a Great Bookstore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

At a point when independent bookstores are all but disappeared, Books and Books is still king. Mitch still runs a great store with a focus on literary works. I miss the old days when his poetry section took up an entire room, but he still has a better selection than most. And his cafe rocks!
