Very cozy bookstore with a nice coffee shop on the side. The inside of the store is much larger than it appears and even houses a small art gallery.

I was a little surprised to see that I hadn’t already written a review of Taylor Books since it’s one of my favorite places in Charleston. This is a great independent bookstore with a nice selection of new and used books, interesting art installations, and a solid coffee bar.

It is a large area with a coffee shop, sitting areas, art gallery, and a huge selection of books. We were there on a Sunday and the place stayed busy.

Questions & Answers

Taylor's use to rent Studio space for artists do they still do that and how much

Brad Hall | Nov 7, 2021
Michael Willoughby | Nov 7, 2021

They still have a really nice gallery and if you go in it looks like there is a place where one can put ink to canvas. Great place!

Is this store a second hand store?

Carol Rommel | Nov 7, 2020
Aleshia Napier | Nov 7, 2020

No, they may have a selection of second hand books, but plenty new. It is a lovely bookstore with a large selection overall!

Why are the staff at Taylors allowed to boot someone who was sick from the flu? And someone who was helping her (Renegade her boy friend) this is abuse and I will contact Wva. Human Human rights

Brenda Keiffer | Nov 7, 2020
Dalton McVey | Nov 7, 2020

It's a private business, they're allowed to refuse service. Why was someone with the flu visiting a crowded cafe?

They won't answer their phone and the staff is rude and pretentious.

Ok this showed as a question but seems more like a Statement. The time I was in here everyone was very nice and knowledgeable. I was from another state so they only had one shot to make an impression and that was of a nice place with many things to explore like art, books, great food and drinks and downtown history. Sorry if intelligent styled establishments seems pretentious.

Are you the creator? They are very local minded. Call Dan or go see him and bring your art. Who knows? The used book store may sell comics - I know I've seen graphic novels there.

Can I conduct research with their books while enjoying a cup of coffee, or am I required to buy the books?

Aleta McKemy | Nov 8, 2018
Blaise Liu | Nov 8, 2018

I think any bookstore would allow and encourage you doing that. How can customers decide to buy without turning a few pages first? Especially after we have paid for the coffee.
