The two-level space, which stocks a range of literary fiction, nonfiction, rare books and collectibles, is a tranquil spot for gathering with friends. Conversely, it's also a great place for youngsters to rock out, thanks to the café's storytime and sing-along series on Mondays. All proceeds from the café go to providing support services for homeless people living with HIV/AIDS.
