This large local book store is a rarity. It’s been around for many decades and continues to do a good job of competing with the chains and internet. Good selection and service. An adjacent deli has a nice patio for relaxing and reading.
Definitely a favorite of the locals, especially since almost all of the local book stores in Palo Alto have been wiped out.
