Recharge at a Community Bookstore Followed by a Cafe with Tons of Drink Options

Greenlight Bookstore is an especially wonderful date destination because of its approachable staff and its utter charm. Of course there are books galore, but Greenlight also works hard to foster community and drives home a special commitment to creativity. Whether you and your partner want to disconnect for a bit in order to reconnect over a good book or you’re just happy to get out of the apartment, there’s no place to unwind quite like a bookstore.

Once you’ve picked up a few good books, visit Baba Cool Café nearby for some light and delicious fare. If you’re not in the mood to enjoy one of this chill spot’s beer or wine options, go for the kombucha on tap, a fermented tea comprised of ginger, coriander, and lemon. Baba Cool also serves “Signature Potions,” such as an activated hot chocolate containing raw cocoa, cardamom, and coconut oil.
