  1. I love Couth Buzzard Book Store and Cafe- friendly staff, fantastic local music, delicious coffee, yummy food and drinks, good deals on books, and a real sense of community. Bouno for sure!

    This place has such a different vibe than anywhere on Greenwood: instead of hipsters and rude baristas, everyone here is friendly and so laid-back!
    Great place to sip coffee and discover weird and wonderful books. Plus, they always seem to have something heavenly baking in their tiny oven.

  3. the original Couth Buzzard is the best place john boy ever hung out (this says a Lot, i am a hard-core recluse). the New Improved- Couth Buzzard Espresso Buono is even better. this ‘recluse’ never misses writer’s workshop, open mike, and family game nights. and the home made brownies should require an Rx >:o)

    buono buzzard is a charming and cozy cafe. By far my favorite place to curl up with a fun book or engage in lively conversations with the excellent baristas. The selection of books is quite good. I was pleasantly surprised to find one of my favorite, slightly obscure, novelists on their shelves!
