AMPERSAND BOOKS

Books! And coffee! Books and coffee! And food! Books and coffee and food! and funky art students everywhere! At Ampersand Books, amazing service and hospitality awards are part of the furniture. “The best part about it is the building is an old house,” says the two very friendly staff, who are all too eager to please and passionate about their business. Up-selling the venue is no new concept to them as they describe all the beautiful “Paddington models” that come and hang out. Seriously! This place has everything! The Alternative Media staff may be setting up shop here very soon. (LC)
