The very first — only? — full-service restaurant, music shop, and bookstore in this city, Tres Gatos serves up stellar tapas in the space once occupied by Roseway Books. In tribute, Tres Gatos still offers an impressive selection of used and new books, and rare vinyl that patrons can browse between mouthfuls of dangerously good churros or tortillas española. When it comes to good vibes, these cats got it covered.
