  • New, used, & rare books on Computers, Electronics, Physics, Math, and Science as well as hand-picked inspirational and leisure reading, puzzles, brain teasers, gadgets, and gifts.
  • Best bookstore ever! The owners are a pair of geniuses too!
  • Go if you must but do not, under any circumstances, look at the shelves. Full to the gills with pretty books you didn't know you needed.
  • The best place to nerd out. It's a cozy, clean cafe with a wonderful staff, good wifi, and amazing house made baked goods. My favorite spot in Seattle!
  • Free (non-alcoholic) drink with purchase of a bag of Kuma coffee beans!
  • One of my favorite places in town, and come to think of it, one of my favorite bookstores anywhere. Especially recommended if youre the least bit geeky.
  • fantastic curation of authors, topics & sweet patio area
  • Multiple plugs for every table and bench! Free Wi-Fi, ask for password at the counter.
  • Boo, they've instituted a time limit on wifi access. 3hrs. Great place for working though.
  • Skip the Americano and try the coffee shot! A great cup of coffee!
  • One of the most unique coffee cafes Ive seen-great books, fast WiFi, and great coffee. You have to get here.
  • This place just may be my favorite bookstore in Seattle
  • Always like a good one-stop-shopping spot. Books, coffee, wine, a nibble. Much appreash.
  • One of those places with no tipping policy, which I like. The staff is very friendly. The coffee was OK. Atmosphere is really nice. I didnt try but they also have good looking food.
  • Swing by with your little ones for story time at 9:30am on Sundays!
  • Great coffee, food and atmosphere
  • Great selection of books. My dream bookstore
  • Unique curation of books that focus on tech and science for all ages and genders but also have other "smart" stuff. They've usually got a selection of electronic kits for kids as well.
  • Great niche bookseller. Knowledgable staff. Great cafe for working. Buy food to support the business!
  • A cool place to nerd out. Love the selection of books; very well curated!
