    Heaven on earth for readers. Daily book readings and book signing occasions. Lots of signed books & huge selection of books. Downstairs discount section was amazing. Very well curated music section!

    Amazing selection of books! If you've run out of things to read, this is definitely the place to discover great books. Highly recommend the author events.

    Not to be missed at the cafe: the homemade toast with jam. It's homemade and from Lyon bakery in D.C. It's literally the best I've ever tasted.

    Politics & Prose caters to a well-read and politically savvy clientele. The cozy basement cafe serves coffee, drinks, sandwiches, salads and a vegan soup of the day. -- Green Guide Editor

    DC's best bookstore for bibliophiles. This is the shop you see so often on CSPAN Book TV. Awesome indie selection, great staff, curated book groups, very nice coffeehouse downstairs -- but not cheap.

    At twenty-five years old this is the grand dame of independent book stores in DC. Their selection is unmatched and the caliber of author readings beats any national chain. En savoir plus

    Great little coffee/tea and bookstore a few blocks north of UDC. Will probably make a stroll back her when the weather is nicer. Nothing modern and chain like here!

    Sale books are downstairs! They always have a great selection. If for some reason they don't have a book they'll order it for you. :-)

    Nice, but Internet is cut off during lunch time which staff said is between 11am and 3pm. I guess this frees up tables for customers buying food and not just sipping and surfing. A bit inconvenient.

    Love this place but was annoyed the cashier rang up my order for 2 books for a book event so that it cost me MORE than it would have if I had only purchased each book individually

    Why won't they rent me space for an apartment? I don't need much room. One of the discount rooms will do, or the alcove where the travel books are. I won't bother the customers. I'll just be reading.
