It has much more than just books!! So cool! Walk down 3rd ave all the way to Alma, to 4th, then find yourself in an adorable little shopping district, including Banyen Books and Aphrodites Pie! SO wonderful.

Tasty greek salad. Belly dancers 8 pm Fri. & Sat. night and reservations recommended. Open for lunch & dinner from 11:30am daily. Great for large groups or romantic dinner for two.
