With great books, comfy chairs, wines by the glass and a classy cafe, The Book Cellar is the perfect place to unwind. "Lincoln Square is very supportive of independent, small-business owners, and I thought the neighborhood could use a bookstore," says Suzy Takacs, owner, "[It’s] been asking for one for years."

The Book Cellar carries more than your average bestseller, principally featuring local and first-time authors. It hosts monthly events with readings for kids and adults, allowing customers to meet their favorite authors and hear up-and-coming writers. It also carries a wide range of children’s literature and has special "Friday fun" readings each week.

The cafe offers excellent options, including a seasonal salad with butter lettuce, blue cheese, red grape with a shallot-confit vinaigrette; a roast beef sandwich upped a notch with blue cheese dressing, spinach, roasted tomato and frazzled leeks on sourdough bread; and roasted squash soup. You can also choose a glass of wine from an impressive collection of red, white and roses, all priced between $6.50-$8 per glass.
