This business had two parts, symbolized by two storefronts in the strip mall. The first is for the non-chain but Starbucks-like coffee bar, and the second is for the bookstore. The two store areas are joined by a large internal opening in the shared wall.
1 Coffee Bar
The coffee bar has a large selection of coffees and teas. The pastries were OK; I have not tried the sandwiches. It is worth checking whether they still are setting beignets and café au lait with chicory on Saturday mornings.
Several organizations use the coffee bar as a meeting place. The coffee bar also sometimes has performances of live music. Check the website.
The bookstore mostly has second-hand books but also has a selection of new books that were written by Huntsville-area authors or that are of particular local interest. The bookstore is well-lit and more spacious than most second-hand bookstores. It has some hardbacks and trade paperbacks as well as mass-market paperbacks. Its selection is of good quality but not big. Its prices are about average for profit-making, second-hand bookstores.
