Foursquare Tips

  • Read.
  • If the park is your place, these are your toilets.
  • This Barnes & Noble store is also an AT&T Wi-Fi Hot Spot. Curl up with your Nook and connect with AT&T Wi-Fi.
  • Great view of Rittenhouse Square. One of my favorite book stores to go to in the city. Go to their cafe, which has more on the menu than most Starbucks!
  • The Barnes and Noble cafe just serves Starbucks brand, they are not a Starbucks. I suggest getting you Starbucks around the corner at 18th and chestnut and bringing it with you.
  • One of the best bookstores in philly
  • If you don't secure a seat in the cafe within 5 minutes after the store opens, you're out of luck and will need to try again tomorrow.
  • Visit Tria around the corner for a wine, beer, cheese: 123 S 18th St
  • The ppl in the caf area aren't really nice but other then that a nice place to spend your time in.
  • Are you a teacher? Educators receive discounted admission to Dead Sea Scrolls at The Franklin Institute when purchased at this location--only $19.95! (You can even bring one guest for the same rate!)
  • Barnes and Noble members save 10% on every purchase!
  • Extra seating to sit and read on the their floor.
  • Clean up after yourself when you leave your table
  • Shitting in the second floor bathroom is welcome.
  • The Starbucks staff are apparently too busy conversing to remember to make your drink.
  • Beautiful view of Rittenhouse if you sit by the window!
  • Usually no place to sit
  • Free internet here. If your laptop's dying and you don't mind sitting on the ground you can keep it charging with plugs on the ends of some of the bookshelves.
  • Lots of books
  • I love it at Barnes and Noble. It's a great place to relax, grab a great book or several, get homework/work done and think. Great selection of books as well
