Kramers Books and Afterwords Café: Explore a Retail Stalwart Near RiverPoint

Open since the mid-70s, Kramers Books and Afterwords Café is a bookstore, restaurant, and bar in one.  At this enduring DC retailer, you’ll find novels ranging from romance, mystery, and non-fiction to children’s books, classic literature, and sci-fi as you wander down each aisle and explore the stacks. If you prefer, you can also shop for your favorite book online and place an order for pickup or delivery. 

After you find your next read, treat yourself to a yummy meal in their cozy dining area. A few of their breakfast options are avocado toast, French toast, the Soho omelet, along with bloody Mary and mimosa brunch cocktails. The rest of the menu features appetizers, soups, salads, and sandwiches, including deviled eggs, corn soup, arugula Cobb salad, and a burger sandwich.

Spend a few hours getting lost in a world of books and grabbing a bite to eat with friends or family as you explore this fun neighborhood shop in town.
