Don’t let the fact that the Wild Detectives is a bookstore fool you. You’ll be as comfortable spending your evening perched on a stool here as you would be at your favorite bar. Come in during the morning for a great cup of coffee featuring locally roasted beans, or come in later for a sandwich and a beer or a glass of wine. No matter what your reason, you’re going to enjoy the time you spend in this 1940s Oak Cliff house turned culture hub.
