“Nice Bookstore”
Review of Books & Books

Books & Books
Ranked #2 of 9 Shopping in Coral Gables
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 July 2014

It's nice that depsite large chains little independent bookstores like Books and Books can still strive for existence and actually succeed. It's an oasis of calm and quiet and has some great exhibits, speakers, book signings and other events. I have been to a few evening events that were quite nice. There is a restaurant that you can eat at but I never ate there.
I hope Books and Books keeps doing what it is doing.

You could find a lot of variation eventhough it's a small store. The staff were friendly and if you want you can buy a little something to eat while there.

An "institution" in the Gables and a nice place to hang out quietly and peacefully to enjoy a book, friendship and light food fare.

Great place to eat the food is awesome and you are inside a book store so you can browse and read while you are having lunch. he only reason I didn't give it a 5 start is because the service is slow at times. But this does not deter from the good meal.

I support independent book stores, but I do not support bad food. We ate lunch here after buying some books and we found the iced tea to be bland and the food to be generic.
