This place has a lot of great books on all sorts of progressive topics. Staff were really nice. They had tea and coffee but were out of the vegan pastries.

Pros: Great books, Nice atmosphere

Visited in March 2011 and they are not serving food or drink until at least July, but this is a great bookstore so well worth a visit.

I really enjoyed the place - and yes, it's kind of a non-corporate version of a starbucks in a leftist bookstore. They have soy milk for the coffee and also vegan cookies - and of course a wide range of books about veganism (and many other topics.)

Pros: Great bookstore, Interesting events (readings etc.), Good vegan cookies

mostly food for thought, but some food for stomach

Yes, this is a bookstore but Bluestockings has a small cafe featuring snacks (mostly pastries) and coffee and tea. It's all organic and vegan; the anarcha-feminist collective that runs the store is committed to ecology, vegetarianism, and animal rights, as well as the broader overall project of total social transformation. As such, it's a nice place to drop by, chill out, socialize. Buy a book and a coffee! I'd rather throw my money in their direction than at Starbucks.

Pros: good politics/good people, social justice commitment, vegan/organic snacks
