I came here to look for a book for my niece. I like that they have computers where you can look up a book. So you many not know the name but you may still be able to find it. The associates were also helpful to help find the book.

If I'm not wandering around in foodie stores like Sur le Table a few doors down...I'm wandering the bookstores. When I go mall shopping with friends...they actually have to pull me away from the bookstores. I can't help it if I'd rather peruse the aisles of literature (or romance novels) rather than racks and racks of clothes that I'm not going to buy or can't wear. Barnes&Noble in Old Town Pasadena is definitely a shopping destination for me. They have a very good children section and I always find something for my nieces here. I'm the weird aunt that never buys toys. I buy books...and they love it...whether they know it or not.

I really like this neighborhood bookstore. It just has such a nice atmosphere. Everytime i walk in, i feel at home. It can get very crowded on the weekends. It can be a nice getother place for teens and adults.

It is a good place for hang out. The parking could be really difficult. The sitting spot is limited. They are always very busy. But very hippy place to go. A lot of good looking people there.

Located right on Colorado Blvd., Barnes & Noble sports a Starbucks cafe and huge magazine selection. Bargain books are right up front at the registers.

PROS: Great location in downtown Pasadena, huge selection of magazines & books
CONS: No public restroom

I received a gift with an old receipt but this Barnes and Noble was very accomodating and allowed me to return in exchange for a gift card. Not many of the big chain bookstores will do that.

This is an excellent Barnes and Noble. They sell nearly any book you would want and can place special orders, at request. There is a coffee shop inside so you can drink coffee and browse! THis place is located on Colorado Blvd so you will most likely have to park at the meters, but it is in Old Town so what can you expect, really?

If you want to just read a book and people watch, this is a good place to go. But if you are in the mood to buy OR you are looking for an exotic book, this is not the place for you. Yes, they *can* order a book for you that they don't have in stock, but guess what, so I could I....of the Internet...for about half the cost.

Not a good selection on greeting cards either.

PROS: Location, and the Starbucks inside
CONS: Too expensive

Love to come here and read. Can come here to get some coffee and read a book. Can browse to look for good books to buy and you get the chance to view them briefly and quietly. The location is excellent I highly recommend this place and parking is suitable since there are many great businesses all around and some nice bistros too.

What more is there to say that has not already been said? If you like Barnes and Noble, then it is highly likely that you will like this one. After all, it is a Barnes and Noble. Like most, there is a huge selection. There are often sales on books. They have new books in a timely manner. The book sections are easy to navigate. Although it is sometimes crowded, it is crowded with good reason. Although relatively small for a Barnes and Noble, it is run extremely well and is the only one for quite a while. Weekends are much more crowded than weekdays. For the traffic there are not as many chairs as there could be. However, if you are lucky enough to get one, it is guaranteed to be comfortable! There might be a crowd, but you are sure to find a book in the store that will keep your attention away from the crowd around you. Yes, it could be larger, but it is stil a very good Barnes and Noble and often has interesting events like book signings that more local book stores cannot boast. If you are looking for a good

PROS: -Good events
-Large Selection
-Timely Manner

-Staff not Book Enthusiasts

This book store is pretty lacking. The problem is it is too small and conseqently each section is scaled back too much. There is no music or movie section and I generally leave the store with an overall feeing of being disappointed. However, it is the only bookstore in Old Town Pasadena.

I really dislike this Barnes and Noble book store. It is always crowed especially on the weekends. It feels really uncomfortable being there when it's so crowded. It is best to visit this book store on the weekdays but good luck finding what you need, they dont carry many books like other barnes and nobles that ive been to.

I like this location. I can usually find what I am looking for without any problem. One of the things that I like best about Barnes and Noble is that they have a series of classic books that are priced a little cheaper than others so that people can always afford them. They are paperbacks but they are very nice. I appreciate that they encourage reading of the classics that way. This one is a little strange because you have to walk through the Starbucks to get there but it's quiet once you get inside.

this store is always crazy. there are always gobs of people sitting trying to read all the new magazines. its connected to a starbucks which has horrid service. its incredibly slow in ordering and receiving your coffee. if you need something and youare in old town then go, but if you have time i'd go to borders or vromans. its not worth wading through all the people to find what you want.

This is a pretty decent Barnes & Noble. It gets really crowded (especially on the weekends). I wish it were a bigger store so that there was more room. It's also hard to find a place to sit, because the chairs are few and far between and there are lots of people there. They also don't sell music at this one, which is a bummer. But it's a standard B&N (complete with Starbucks) besides that.

This particular book store is a disappointing one in terms of book selections. For example, they have only one shelf for technical books, most of which are the "how to XXXX in 21 days" type. This is completely different from other Barnes & Noble stores I found, especially the ones in Seattle and Sillicon Valley.

On the other hand, they do serve Starbucks coffee, which is the only reason I go there.

Just an average BN. The sitting isn't ample, the magazine selection could be better, and the store is not that large. If you are looking for a good BN check out the one in the shopping center at 3rd and Fairfax in LA.
