  • It's good to be here, reading a book, having coffee, and most of all... using free wi-fi~~ yeah~~!!
  • It's a Barnes & Noble Cafe serving Starbucks. So of course you can't use your Starbucks cards. Common sense people!
  • 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.
  • The cafe is ALLLLLL the way in the back. Keep going, you'll find it.
  • browse shelves before buying. Ignore none of this merchandise unless in your life it is irrelevant.
  • Barista's are slow and rude. Super disorganized. And did I mention slow?
  • Read the magazines on the benches or in the cafe...don't buy, save your money...
  • Best tip from the staff: Order a tall iced coffee in a grande cup so you have room for milk and sweetener.
  • One of my favorite Barnes and Noble stores, they have a fantastic selection, and when you're done you can go to one of many restaurants in the Prudential Center.
  • One of the few good bookstores left in the area.
  • Bathrooms are smelly. Nice place to get coffee, read a book and in a relaxed atmosphere
  • Toilets are filthy.
  • A brick-and-mortar superstore of books.
  • Be on the lookout for Social Media Analytics by Marshall Sponder. This book will rock the PR industry and wake up CEOs.
  • The toy section and kids books section are excellent!
  • Although they dont take Apple Pay/contactless payments, postcards available here!
  • Great selection and staff but expensive!
  • Great book selection, good location.
  • Customer service. My book was having a charging glitch and the salesperson did not stop helping me until I was satisfied.
  • Avoid talking to a customer service lady. She is an old hag who seems to be bothered by everything around her. Don't let her ruin your day! :-)
