Absolutely wonderful bookstore & addition to the community of Plainville... Grandkids love visiting whenever they are with us and personally I love having a bookstore cafe in town... Truly hope they continue to thrive, what a blessing...

Went to the book store to meet with the owners last year. What a great book store and cafe. Its really great, very comfortable and allows for relaxing/browsing. Its nice to be in a one-of-a-kind store built in a historic building. Very cool.
