What people are saying:

Gotta hand it to the folks at Aqua Books--it's not every day that a small-business owner takes a chance on a building on Garry Street. And he went the extra mile too, lovingly renovating and restoring the space, resulting in a fantastic book-store/cafe combo. - Bryan Scott, Winnipeg
