1. J & J's Books and Coffee
J & J's is a second-hand English-language bookshop, with a popular cafe upstairs. The books are cheaper than you'll find new, but still overpriced for what are essentially other people's cast-offs. The cafe is a good place to meet English-speakers, though it has a bit of a closed ex-pat vibe to many. Has a noticeboard for personal ads.
