A perennial favorite of bookish downtowners, McNally Jackson bears home to one of the most expertly curated collections of books in the city. Whether you need an out of print coffee table book, or a certain cover version of a David Foster Wallace tome, you’ll find what you’re looking for at McNally thanks to their extremely knowledgeable staff – but even if you don’t, there’s still a fantastic cafe that plays the perfect host for all those in need of a good cup of coffee, and a long read.
