  • Excelsior Bay Books is a small but cozy bookstore offers an intimate setting on a picturesque street in one of the best "historical" down-towns in the Twin Cities metro. It is a short walk to the lakefront, so I go there several times a year. It is a treat to pick up a book and then order an ice cream cone while enjoying the read. They create interesting book displays. Many are laid out on a table in an inviting manner. With is easy-to-browse format, it is less overwhelming than a block store book shop. We like its natural light which makes it easy to see to take in. Every ounce of floor space smartly adds to its great selection of books, puzzles, guides, toys, stuffed animals, art, cards, and fun gift items. The ladies working here know the books both in stock and available by order. They sure know a good book and are eager to help shoppers locate whatever they have in mind. It offers a nice selection of classics; parents can be confident they are buying a good read that will build up their children. Gift wrap is also available. The choices were as delightful as the books. The young lady who was the recipient of my gift of books was delighted with the fun hedgehogs and ribbon that presented them. If you get a chance, attend the annual LITERATURE LOVERS' LUNCHEON in November. It features multiple authors on their national and local book tours. This local independent bookstore is a true Excelsior MN gem! Their hours of operation are convenient, and all of the staff is nice. Yes, it is a pleasure to shop here!
  • Love this local bookstore! Will order anything you want if not on shelf. Great author hosting too.
