Lovely oasis from surrounding touristy venues. Nourishment for body and soul in small cafe with good range of imaginative vegetarian (?) food at lunch. Tea/coffee and cake also. Lunch dishes mostly £6.50, wonderful value in this area. Friendly service. A great find in a real bookshop.
One of the best bookshops in London. They also have a cafe alongside where today I had one of the top five best lunches I have ever had (gazpacho). The food is as fresh as the book selection.

Spacious, ambient and boasting a great variety of books. This is a great book store with a huge variety of books. Store is well laid out and very appealing with kind and attentive staff. There is also an attached cafe serving coffee and treats so you can relax with your new book or take a moment out of your busy day.
Wonderful book store with several floors. You also can buy cards, gifts, little gadgets. The selection of books is huge. From academic to fiction, everything in between. Also a crafted selection of antique books. Very nice is the special Penguin room, with used books. Very friendly and helping service staff. Comfortable interior, invites to sit down and going through books. The shopping Windows are decorated very attractively. Coffee, tea, cakes are served in a separate area, very delicious. Visit highly recommended.

Staff have knowledge on *every* book they shelve! It's incredible to be able to pick up a book then spend an hour discussing it with them and being given similar recommendations. They also let you sit down and read, no strings attached, which is lovely. The staff here care more about the customers than the profits.
A great little bookshop open late-ish. Great for stopping by after work for an hour or so with a really great choice and alcoves for sitting and reading. The small selection is well curated with guest shelves which can make choosing a new book a lot easier than in a big Waterstones. Only one small issue is that I found the loud, minimalist techno quite annoying, I think some low classical or jazz would suit it more and be less intrusive.
