The best accompanyment to the ambiance of the Harvard Cooperative Society, better known as the COOP, is the 'Coop Cafe' on the second floor of this bookstore with atmosphere.
It is a great bookstore which oozes atmosphere unlike the huge chain bookstores in the malls. The proportions of the interior as well as the dark wood trim everywhere give it a wonderful decor. One feels smarter just being there. And very helpful clerks; you can actually find them in thirty seconds or less. Try that at the mall.
