I have always had good luck finding books I like at this store. Perhaps too much luck because I always leave away the poorer. I don't even buy the knick-knacks (sp?) along the line to the checkout counter, but a video here, a children's book there, and I'm always over budget. I do appreciate the employees though who are always helpful.

One of the coolest Bay Area bookstores, just for their sheer selection. There's not only a PLETHORA of books to choose from, but munchies too! What's more to ask for? There's a whole section dedicated to self-published authors. It's a must visit every time I'm in the neighborhood.

I love borders. They always have a great selection of books, and offers a nice, quiet place to sit and read and relax. The staff is really friendly and helpful.

I love stopping by at this borders. They have a great selection of books, magazines, music, etc. And the best part is that you can sit there easily and read through their items while sipping on a coffee from the cafe.

I found this the best bookstore out of the borders around San Francisco. Even though it's in the middle of market, there are places that are really quiet and great to get a book and read. If you bring a friend along, sitting on the floor is extremely fun. They change their layout a lot though.

I love going into borders to browse for books. They have such a huge selection! The prices are resonable too. I love it browsing through their sale section because you can find some really good deals--especially on journals and cookbooks. I like that they have a cafe too. They make a really yummy chai tea. It's a great place to find holiday gifts.

I've had bad experiences at the one in San Rafael, but this one is way better. The selection is about the same, but the staff is a lot friendlier and there are more places to sit down. The lines tend to be long when you want to buy something, but they move quick. I've never tried the cafe here. It's generally pretty clean too.

I love browsing in bookstores. And Borders is great for that. Three levels of reading materials await you. And the staff are always helpful, at least when I've been there. I go there to read the magazines, buy fiction, and sometimes to get travel books. Good selection of cooking books, too. The cafe seems packed on weekends. Oh, the kids' section is very abundant, too. Located near Union Square, you may have to walk around tourists to get to it.

Whenever I come to San Francisco I escape to Borders
A hot latte and a muffin in the coffee shop , chill out and relax in the silence. An overwhelming respite from a busy business day on the convention circuit.

Pros: Range, Coffee, Categories

Cons: Busy downstairs, new books section, is too rushed

All the basics are here. I was disappointed in the cd selection, and, the staff on that floor was fairly unhelpful. In the future, I'll head to Virgin on Market for music.
