This Unusual Bookstore Restaurant In West Virginia Used To Be A Cathedral

Let us ask you a serious question: in all of the times you have crossed the New River Gorge Bridge, how many times have you pulled off of U.S. Route 19 in Fayetteville onto WV-16, a.k.a. S Court Street? (And pulling into Tudor’s on the corner there isn’t exactly what we mean, mind you – although everyone knows Tudor’s is awesome). No, we’re asking if you’ve gone past Tudor’s and into downtown Fayetteville? If you keep rambling past that tried and true Tudor’s on the corner, you’ll eventually arrive at a charming little book store eatery that’s been the heart of Fayetteville for more than 20 years.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
