Quality over quantity is the rule of thumb at this small, independently owned bookstore in Lincoln Square. Behind a glass storefront brightened by flower-filled planters, the shop’s interior is adorned with light hardwood floors, burgundy walls, and plush armchairs beneath a row of windows. The inventory emphasizes first-time and local authors and includes both fiction and nonfiction covering a range of topics, from history and art to travel and sci-fi. There’s also an excellent selection of children’s literature. After purchasing a book, customers can enjoy their new read with a glass of wine or coffee from the in-store café.
