  • Don't come here uncharged. No outlets for customers. I've learned the hard way...more than once
  • Read books without buying them.
  • The senior citizen chair circle on the second floor is so exclusive.
  • 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.
  • Love this place. Staff always courteous beyond expectation. Highly curious and knowledgeable team. Its a literary anchor in a neighborhood afloat in entertainments.
  • Wonderful range of books. Needs a cricket section in the sports bit though.
  • Nice-sized cafe
  • No electrical outlets if you're hoping to be plugged in - they're sticklers, too!
  • There's only 4 comfy chairs upstairs and people get vicious.
  • No electrical outlets on the resident Starbucks section
  • I feel really good when I'm here. like filled up and powerful. like I'd just escaped a hostage situation or the feeling of having survived a bout of ferocious airplane turbulence.
  • Great selection of business and travel books, and they offer to gift wrap. (thanks to Virginia D!)
  • Beautiful beautiful
  • Like most Barnes & Nobles, they have every magazine you could ever imagine...and many you couldn't.
  • Pra encontrar livros, revistas e discos, vale a pena dar uma passada por aqui!
  • Pretty big bookstore with a decent selection of recent releases and discounts
  • Lovely bookstore with a cafe inside. Lots of cute stationery and other small things to be purchased
  • 2 stories! Quiet and a really nice place
