Incredibly comprehensive selection of materials, particularly arkham house and independent press horror books, the stuff that wouldn't be found at many of the major bookstore chains and elsewhere.
One of the best examples of a game, comic book, and literature store. Nice, clean, decent prices for a comic book shop and friendly to families and fans.
Good parking, decent prices, good performance space. What's not to love about this independent coffeehouse, which is really supportive for writers and artists.
Sure the Famous Daves in Uptown has live blues and the like, but this is still a great spot to stop in to and you can't go wrong with the ribs and the selection of sauces. Best to dine in, not take out, for the best experience.
Orr Books specializes in spiritual, mythic, new age books and the sorts of things you won't find in a Sam's Club or Costco bookstore. Charming and quaint.
If you're in Minneapolis it's hard to beat a stop in at Magers and Quinn even if it's just to browse. Lots of fine books to select from at reasonable prices.
Other things are overpriced here, but the desserts here are real standouts and not to be missed if you get a chance to try them out. Watch out, too many trips will add a few pounds to you, but ultimately, very delicious.
One of the best of the Shinders franchises in the Twin Cities area. Like most of them, they carry an impressive collection of comics, popular and even somewhat unpopular magazines, trading cards and trading card games.
Carries an impressive collection of comics, popular and even somewhat unpopular magazines, trading cards a nd trading card games, as well as adult materials for those so inclined.
One of the best spots for used books that you're going to find in Saint Paul. Three stories and a real landmark in the city. Particularly good with art books, comic books, old playboy issues, etc. A little skimpy on poetry, folklore and mythology, as a note, however.
