Best of Boston

2024 Best Bookstore

Beacon Hill Books & Café

How do you get a supermodel, an Olympian, and a U.S.senator all in the same room? With the lure of Beacon Hill Books & Café, a five-story townhouse converted in to one of the most charming spaces in the city. The bookstore is truly its own universe, offering author conversations, poetry readings, children’s activities (don’t miss the working toy train), and even speed-dating events.
