A great place to duck into and escape hot summers days in the city is Ábaco Libros y café. A well stocked book store carrying many great photo and coffee table books on local architecture and artisans. History, philosophy and psychology books crowd the shelves alongside the regular selection of classics and modern novels. If your Spanish isn't good enough to buy a book in the local language, get online on their wifi and enjoy an afternoon cocktail or a refreshing lemonade, all the while absorbing the comfortable ambiance with low jazz music sounding from around. My type of place. And a big plus always for their incredibly tasty and fresh carrot cakes and other homemade pastries.
