What You'll Get
A full bookshelf provides not only a conversation piece for guests, but also lessens the odds they'll pull out the tome that triggers the trapdoor to your Satanic shrine to Don Knotts. Build up book collections and safeguard secrets with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of literature at Indigo Bridge Books and a medium cup of coffee or tea (a $21.75 total value) at its eating annex, Café Indigo. Indigo Bridge Books and Café Indigo are located on one seventh of a rainbow in the Creamery Building in historic Haymarket.
Indigo Bridge is an independent bookseller specializing in fine, readable papers and legibly printed pamphlets covering the full spectrum literary subjects. Freshly minted works of literary art and entertainment comprise the stock, with bestsellers, new releases, classics, and complex treasure maps concealed within the poetry and prose of seemingly mundane texts. Check out Indigo Bridge's blog for a quick preview of what's in store, such as the Victoriana-inspired Fingersmith by Sarah Waters ($16), the smashingly modern Mr. Peanut by Adam Ross ($25.95), and the Native American tale War Dances by contemporary author Sherman Alexie ($14). Don't forget to visit the Café Indigo inside the bookstore to claim your regular coffee or tea. Recent special coffee roasts have included Ethiopian Amaro Gayo and Costa Rican La Candelilla Typica Honey, and the tea selection is straight from The Tea Smith.
Indigo Bridge's vision began with an idea for a bilingual story time that would cater to the city's Spanish-speaking and English-speaking children. The bookstore quickly took shape as a community resource for all residents, with events, book clubs, and now a café. Indigo Bridge is a delightfully welcoming and incredibly non-terrifying way to spend some time catching up on some leisurely reading.
- They serve Cultiva coffee (see my rave about them for further information), and their great taste in suppliers trickles down into the cup. I found the baristas--and all of the staff, for that matter-- to be friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. – Charles G., Yelp
- man, wish I didn't live on the completely opposite side of town I'd have coffee at Indigo every morning! – Sara M., Facebook
