I honestly would have never stopped to look to see what this store was all about unless I visited the deli that was next to it. Nimue's Book Cafe & Book Store in Midland Park, NJ seemed to spring out of nowhere one day and quietly infiltrate the area.

This place is a small shop that is a cafe/bookstore combined into one. Upon entering you can already get a sense that this is more of a hangout joint, ala the Friends coffee shop on television. There are a few choices, some tables and chairs, dim lighting, a fireplace, and a few bookshelves filled with... you guessed it... books. The books in the lounge area are for reading pleasure while the ones in the cafe section are for sale.

The crowd that usually hangs out in here is a young one, trying to find something different to do. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a youth group meeting and feel out of place. Then there are the assortment of people that also patronize the store, from old to young, weird to normal, but definitely colourful.

The beverages that are aerved are comparable to any Starbucks or other coffee places. The difference is being served in an actual cup with saucer, not paper.

The problem with this store is that one never knows when it is opened. I usually see a crowd at night time, but it's always closed during the day. Even at night it's erratic. Sometimes it's open and sometimes it's not. It's almost like there's a secret cult that congregrate around this shop.

It's a cute place but it doesn't seem to fit in the town that almost shuts down after nine. The only places that are open around it is the Friendly's down the street, the Porchlight Grill even further down, and 7-Eleven. Here's hoping that they can make something out of it.

PROS: Different, cozy, intimate
CONS: Hours are unknown

Nimues Cafe & Book Store draws an interesting, eccelctic crowd to its small shop. The first thing that draws poeple, especially the young people, is the ambience set by the dim lighting. There is a relaxed feeling upon entering the store, especially with the incense burning adding to the mystique and aroma.

There are books for sale but not as many as you would think. In fact, I almost think the book serve as a decoration to add to the comfort of the place. The cafe serves an array of drinks at a reasonable price. A few tables and chairs are set out for people to sit down and relax. Even moreso are the couches that are available to make it even more cozy. Bookshelves filled with books for reading pleasure adorn this shop to great effect.

There are plenty of young s who frequent this place. In fact they sometimes bring their own food and enjoy the quiet atmosphere as opposed to the oversaturated big cafes that populate the area.

Nimues is a great change of pace getting away from the big mainstream bookstores and cafes. Intimatacy seems to be the word closely associated with this place and one that's welcomed.

PROS: A nice change of venue
