I love the Ivy Bookshop selection of books and I want to love the place more for it's great menu (which is pricy) but it simply is WAY too crowded almost all the time. Most of the time all tables are taken, and whenever I go if I have a table, I always share my space with some poor stranger looking around hopelessly for a spot. I don't know if you can address this concern with some re-design, but until you can, I feel like I can't give a better rating. I'll still buy the great books here, though! I no longer have a car and can't visit the original bookshop anymore without a friend to drive me.

I really like Bird in Hand. It has a nice ambiance, a combination of both modern and cozy. I first tried their Egg and Cheddar breakfast sandwich and I was very impressed. The texture of the egg was very fluffy. There was just the right amount of cheddar cheese and it blended perfectly with the flavor of the egg. I also had a grilled cheese sandwich here. It was pretty good, but it was a bit pricey and didn't really fill me up.
