  • We found this tiny but sophisticated book shop on the way back from cafe. Can’t take photo inside, but it was a very good experience for us to be there. Lots of good educational book for kids. Anyone who have kids, next time you go around there don’t miss it!
  • I've read some bad reviews because of the staff, but they either changed the staff, or maybe it was an exception, because the girls there are incredibly nice. When i was searching for an item they didn't have anymore, they pointed me to an alternative and also called the other store to ask if they had it and had it delivered here by the next day. It is a very nice, cosy bookstore, with lots of books for children and childish grown-ups.
