Innisfree Poetry Bookstore and Cafe
Innisfree poetry bookstore and cafe (Innisfree's) is a poetry only bookstore and local coffee cafe. It is located on the University Hill in Boulder, Colorado, on 13th and Pennsylvania avenue "diagonally across from The Sink." Innisfree is one of only three bookstores in the United States dedicated exclusively to poetry, and offers a selection of both adult poetry as well as poetry written for young adults and children. The name of the store comes from the poem Lake Isle of Innisfree by William Butler Yeats. In order to connect with the local poetry community the store itself hosts twice weekly poetry readings by both beginning writers as well as established poets. In addition to poetry, Innisfree offers locally roasted Conscious Coffee which won the 2011 roaster of the year award from Roast magazine.
