I've been frequenting Malaprop's cafe since it was in the old basement location down the street. It's always been a great place to hear poetry slams, authors readings, and is one of the few remaining indie booksellers left. Great coffee and eats, too.
Great place to hang out, have something to drink and a pastry. Buy a book from an independent book seller.
Love to drink coffee and read a book (or people watch!) at this place. Great view of Haywood Street, several computers with internet access. Mainly just coffee drinks and baked goods/pastries.
