Some of the coziest coffee shops are found in bookstores! For book lovers and coffee aficionados, Crown Height’s recently opened Cafe Con Libros is a must-visit. The feminist bookstore, founded by Kalima DeSuze, is a community-oriented space, which provides unique programming like book clubs, book fairs, prison outreach, and more.

“It’s a place made safe and accountable by boundary-pushing Feminist books, community members, and open dialogue,” writes DeSuze about the shop. “We hope to provide a space for building community and healing through reading, dialogue, and simply being in the company of fellow community members.” Address: 724 Prospect Pl.
