There is a new magazine out, Our City San Diego. Have you seen it? Read it? Well, I came across this mag and noticed that our very own Upstart Crow Coffee House & Book Store was voted "Best bookstore for hour long lounging". How cool is that?! And I have to say, it is SO true.
"Locals aware of this hidden gem mingle amiably with sun-splashed tourists at the Upstart Crow, located in Seaport Village. This small shop, which has been in business for more than 20 years, offers an eclectic selection-- classics, bestsellers, New Age, and specialty books. The Upstart Crow, named for a description of William Shakespeare by a jealous rival playwright, is a charming, inviting store, with plenty of tables and seating for those who want to enjoy a cup of coffee and conversation or just get lost in a good book. The coffee bar offers a wide range of brewed beverages that rival any of the chain shops. (Be sure to try the Mexican spiced cocoa.) You can relax on the outdoor patio or on the balcony overlooking the coffee bar. It's a relaxing way to spend an hour or two."
All I can say is, well said! Upstart Crow also has free live entertainment every Saturday night and Shakespeare readings the first Tuesday night of every month. It is true, Upstart Crow is our little gem. I am so proud!
