Stories Books and Cafe

Stories Books and Cafe is a funky, cozy spot off Sunset Boulevard—a bookstore/coffee shop hybrid with new and used titles packed floor to ceiling, plus a little cafe in the back with good coffee and fresh food. There's also an outdoor patio popular with the freelance crowd, which gets packed with coffee fiends during the day and is used as an event space at night. If you're looking for an obscure book, chances are they'll have it here. There's also a good selection of gift-y things such as greeting cards, coloring books and magnets and mugs (our favorite has a hot librarian graphic and the words "reading is sexy"). Regular events include readings, signings and open mic comedy, although we'd rather just go for a good latte.

Stories! I love coming in here just to peruse, picking up books and reading the last page before moving onto the next one (sue me). Wish such a tiny space, the bookshelf aisles can get a little congested sometimes, but everyone is polite in maneuvering their way around. If you've landed on a book that you want to buy - or even if you want to read your own magazine that you've brought - order some coffee and a pastry from the shop and settle in.
