If you're looking for a lot of books and a pleasant place to peruse them, seek no further.
Alley Cat Books opened on 24th Street in the heart of the Mission in 2011, and has since supplied a book-hungry neighborhood with new, used, and remaindered books--in English and Spanish! We also carry a colorful array of magazines, calendars, and notebooks.
We're a general interest store, so we have a little of everything. Our staff is happy to help you locate specific titles or you can roam around discovering wondrous obscurities you never knew you couldn't live without.
Make your way to the back of the store and discover our spacious art gallery, where local and international art adorns the high walls. You might happen upon an art opening, poetry reading, or film screening.
