They promote an offer for a $5 coupon after spending $100, but find excuses to not make good on the offer. They say that it's in the system when you earn, but will never tell you. You have to basically catch them. I had to return to the store after going through receipts and adding up my previous balances. I identified that I did in fact have the coupon that should have been applied to my last purchase (which was not long ago today), but the cashier wouldn't apply it to my transaction, even though she should have done it in the first place since she said that it's visible in the system already. I have to spend more money at the store to get a discount that I should have gotten already. Really unfair, and pretty dishonest business practice.

I was a little hesitant when they showed up all fancy from BK on Newark ave but these people are Mega-Lovely!! Fun selections, great recommendations, and most importantly sweet people devoted to JC. Everyone is generally chatty and friendly in a way I wish people at the strand were. P.S. thanks be to whomever recommended 'Age of Wonder' by Richard Holmes it blew my mind - recommend me more like that/marry me!

I loved the handwritten staff recommendations! Everyone was friendly & helpful, but they let me browse for quite a while undisturbed as well. Wonderful store.

Awesome bookstore/cafe. Situated in an area of Jersey City that shuts down on certain days of the week to allow for street festivals, this shop is the perfect place to walk in, grab a book, a coffee, and a snack, and then head outside to a table to enjoy your read while soaking in some local live music. Very clean and well-organized, and the staff is incredibly kind, courteous, and knowledgeable. They often host local and famous authors for signing events and Q&As, so be sure to check those out as well. A real breath of fresh air.

Cool place cool books exceptional location bad part if you are not (and I repeat) not a downtown yuppie you are treated differently. Like you do not belong in their little bookstore or even worse like in their universe! Again social skills and personal interactions are a must for any businesses to survive!
