The variety of books is amazing. We stopped in before going to Taliesin and then returned after our tour. Ate lunch there. Delicious pot roast sandwich and salad. It is one of the best small bookstores I have been in, and I have been in...More

We went to a dinner before going to American Players Theater. The food was great and all local. Great homemade fresh noodles! Good coffee. It was a bit weird eating staring at the bookshelves, but we found some books we absolutely had to have.

Combine a superb selection of soups and sandwiches plus amazing shelves of fascinating books, and you have Arcadia, the best bookstore around, in any season. Special meals offered on occasion (check website) and author appearances draw big crowds.

Wide choice of sandwiches, fruit, finger food and some desserts. Very casual and the offerings change daily. This is, as they say, a kitchen, not a fine dining establishment. But the people are charming -- the owner directs at APT -- and very accommodating. Take...More

This wonderful independent bookstore had to enlarge its cafe this year because so many people come to eat and stay to talk about books. Hearty, healthy sandwiches, lots of temptations, good coffee.

As my title indicates, this is a WONDERFUL bookstore - kind of a trip to the past when these little venues were ubiquitous. There are several places to sit and enjoy a read including a couple tables outside if the weather is nice. As another...More

A sign said the head chef is currently on maternity leave, so options are limited. Presumably in the next few months they'll be running as normal. I arrived around 2 pm on a Saturday and there were 3 sandwiches left, a few green salads, some...More
