Espressos and baked goods available for sale, better than Starbucks. Books for sale, new and used, mostly Christian. A basket of free books, a reading room, a different charity supported every month - a worthy coffee shop in a gentle part of the world.

Description
Agia Sophia Coffeehouse and Bookstore downtown Harrisburg is a peaceful retreat playing religious music, displaying Christian icons and serving fresh coffee (from brew pots and espresso machine) along with ancient wisdom (found in our books). We make food on-site, primarily soups with salads, spanakopita, and other items as available. As a non-profit, we donate to other local charities.
