Avoid The Day Bookstore & Cafe

The bookstore with a café near The Rockaway Hotel

Avoid the Day Bookstore & Cafe is Rockaway's only independent bookstore. Curated and run by locals Jianna and Jason Heuer, you can sip on wine, cold brew coffee, or tea while browsing the bookstore's curated selection of used and new books - including its very own "Beach Reads" section and an ever growing "Local Authors" section. There is also a selection of local bites, art, gifts and other merchandise to peruse - rain or shine.
