This is the perfect combination - good coffee and treats and books to boot. Very helpful and friendly staff and some cute gifts as well. Don't miss the second hand books upstairs or the brownies.

I don't know how they fit so many of my favorite things into this one store. A Game of Thrones reference at the front door, a sweet and spicy latte called "Mr. Darcy", and a free cookie day once a week (sorry, can't remember exactly which day it was, but it was awesome). Browsing through their book selection ranged from... More

Better coffee and pastries for less just down the street. Bad attitude from the "barista" on my last visit. Go buy a book, but take a pass on the food and drink.

It was my favourite place to go during my college years in Steamboat, with friend or on my own. They always had a wide selection of books and a cozy area to sit curling up with a book or get coffee and a dessert. Super cozy.

Great bookstore, little cafe, good food and snacks and coffee. Spend done time, wander around, check out the upstairs for cheap used books. Linger a bit and take a break from your adventures in steamboat.

I was wandering around Steamboat and stumbled into this gem. Compact store with best sellers and quirky books to browse through. Friendly and helpful staff, plus other interesting patrons to talk books with. Then add in a coffee shop-what else could you want?! I was looking for a new travel inspired book and found The Sex Lives of Cannibals (fun... More

Ladies up front that day were very helpful and knew exactly where to find whatever I was looking for. They also were very knowledgeable about the books I was getting!
