Music was too religiously orientated for me. Lovely surroundings. Good food. May go back.

They have smiling, friendly service and no stress pushing materials on you. The deli always has smiling girls, white aprons, clean, my wife and I thought adequate amount of food fresh every day. Nice looking cutlery, plates on clean tables. Very relaxing but limited seating around lunch times. Great selection of ice creams and deserts. Lower priced then" After Thoughts" restaurant. I have no family ties there so honest review. If ever Groupon is for this business, I definitely would buy three, one, or two even for gifts. Close to centre of city and walking distance from main street Abbotsford. I only good there when I need a certain book to read and not unless I have a Groupon, friend for lunch. I took my travel agent there on Groupon and she was definitely impressed with the deserts. Okay for house of James, keep the nice smiling young ladies to serve, and I think eventually you will get rid of the rumour your books are over priced! Keep up the book sales using red tags and have more sales. Your employee" Rick" in book/bibles,other/ is polite, knowlegeable, friendly, has pos/neg.comments. I appreciate on certain authors and briefly reads so many and I/we trust his judgement, I feel relaxed and not pressured to buy. Good positive comments from a friend I sent in to see Rick. Your cash register people male/female appear calm,nice,friendly even if ones is in a line up(calms me down). This is the time of year you should be getting us Groupon's for gifts, not just when slow! Many people surprising I learned have not even heard of House of James and I gave one away to a lady from near by city and purchased a bible. This is a book store some thing for any age and religion or none but worth the browse. You need music through out the store and a video going for young kids while parents shop.
