Are you a bookworm? Do you love the comfort of hiding away in the magical world of fiction? Do you feel like a paperback is all you need, sometimes? Where could you find a nice pint-sized corner for you to get lost in the stories? Can you find one in NYC? Could you get a hot beverage, there, too?
Here’s a list of book cafes in New York City where you can enjoy turning leaves while you can sip on a cuppa brew confined in your own little quiet world amidst the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple:
1. Housing Works Used Book Cafe
With beautiful interiors and an inimitable selection of rare and proof copy books, Housing Works is your escape from reality. Especially after a long day roaming around the city, pop in for a good read and a bowl of soup.
2. McNally Jackson Books Cafe
McNally is not only known for its amazing selection of books but also its homely feel and killer hot chocolate! It’s huge and one of its kind, making it a hard one to miss. Don’t forget to try the bagels here!
3. Every Thing Goes Book Cafe
ETG is all about love, peace and good vibes. Set in the time of the 60’s the cafe offers excellent service and delicious nicknacks to make your reading experience a great one. With a beautiful collection of new and used books, comic books and CD’s of local artists and musicians this cafe is, definitely, worth your attention.
4. Archestratus Books And Foods
How many times have you heard the words ‘culinary’ and ‘bookstore’ in the same sentence? Yes, it’s true! Archestraus is not just a book cafe, it’s ideal for dinner parties and offers a variety of vintage and new cookbooks. With events happening with guest-chefs and bakers, the master chef in you will feel completely at home.
Not only are these a great source of entertainment and fulfillment, I have also picked up the habit of reading regularly even when I’m travelling on my routine NYC to Washington bus.
