This cozy hideaway, full of an eclectic collection of books, art, and oddities, accompanied by good coffee and a small menu of sweets, is surely a place its namesake would adore. It’s one of the few places where a life-sized stuffed zebra, a Charles Darwin finger puppet, and a caterpillar pin are perfectly normal. Solid wood tables run alongside windows framed by verdant fronds and blossoms of the plants that nearly envelope the building. Visitors are encouraged to enjoy a book or two with their beverage and tasty slice of cake or scrumptious cookie. A night café offers a variety of events throughout the year, ranging from a young rakugo performer to established illustrators and authors.
