“Ideal for bookworms.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This small book shop stocks a huge selection of new and secondhand books as well as coffee. The staff are very knowledgeable and willing to assist in finding books.
They have a buy and sell back system which suits people while holidaying. Definitely the place to go and browse. They often have recent books that are secondhand at good prices.

“Best Coffee in Noosaville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This little nook is a wonderful retreat for a book lover and with a cup of great coffee. Tucked away in Thomas Street Street, it provides the visitor with an extensive selection of books to choose from. The staff are very knowledge and can advise you on any selection. If you are a reader who appreciates great coffee The River Read is the place to visit.

“Wonderful cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is a great place to browse books - there are a number of books that I hadn't seen previously there.

The coffee is great - made with skill and not just splashed into a cup.

Snacks are OK but sitting drinking coffee and enjoying the ambience of the outside area.

Definitely worth trying.
