Overview
More
Set within a gorgeous restored English-style mansion, this bookstore brings you home. Immense wood shelves are covered in books, and the comfortable lounge chairs and couches beg to be sat on. The selection covers it all: classic to modern literature, poetry, photography and food, graphic novels and essays. Treat yourself to a hot beverage at their coffee shop while you read or chat with friends. As if the books in English and the bilingual librarians weren't enough reasons to visit, they also have cultural programs for children, and adults can listen in as experts discuss literary topics. This is a place to let your creativity and imagination run wild.

The library is supernice and cosy, and has very good and interesting books as well. A coffee in their small café is highly recommended, they have very good baristas and you can buy coffee there as well.

Most flea markets peddle junk, this one has some unique and high quality offerings as well as the usual CDs and trinkets.

Hello Richard I believe this opinion is not for us. We are a Bookshop and certainly we have high quality books but we are not in flea market. Hope you can come and visit us. We won´t disappoint you
