There is so much to like about this place. This Warehouse District building is gorgeous on the inside with the various spaces that encourage collaboration, learning and book arts. I continue to enjoy the art and creativity, the old printing presses, the coffee shop, and of course the gift shop. This is great place to come back to again and again.

I have spent some time studying at the Open Book Cafe. It's a great atmosphere- there are a lot of "booky" people who hang out there. They have good basic soups and sandwiches, but the prices are pretty high for the amount of food served.

The first thing you'll notice about Ruminator is that it doesn't seem focused on the SALE of the books. You can go in Ruminator, hang out, listen to book readings, that sort of thing, and never buy a thing, and the employees don't care either way. They know that loyalty brings sales more than pushy salespeople. It's a great place to go if you're a "litera-phile", and it's one of those little book stores that make you feel smarter just by being there! You'll find some great tomes, poetry in particular, that you wouldn't necessarily find elsewhere.

PROS: Great selection (though not the normal kind), "smart" atmosphere
CONS: The occasional weird customer
