great bookshop. Would have bought more if the luggage allowance had permitted! Really nice eclectic selection for a bookshop selling new books (and the coffee was good too).

A really great selection of books you'd never heard of and never knew you needed until you saw them.

Fabulous atmosphere - great bookshop, and terrific restaurant too!

A really fun place to hang out. Love the coffee bar and all the bustle and all those books. It manages to be a local friendly place in a large metropolitan area.

Extraordinarily this is the only bookshop in the DC area that had a copy of the 9/11 report in stock at short notice. Spent a good period in there and then tarried further in the licensed restaurant.

This is a fun place to browse but it can be kind of overwhelming, since it is pretty tightly packed.

One of the best bookstores in DC. Just a great atmosphere
