Homemade goodies and books

Nice place to stop for a snack, although the cafe aspect is a bit overwhelmed by the number of books. Three-top tables were common; not easy to seat a party of four or more. Nevertheless, the homemade soups and muffins and cookies were very good.

I couldn't find my usual Golden coffee stop (it moved or closed down) so I chose Bacchus based upon reviews. I waited in a short cue of two other patrons, and although I was in a bit of a hurry I still felt their shouldn't have taken nearly as long as it did. The 'barrista' didn't seem overwhelmed, just slow.... More

Due to the good trip advisor rating we visited the Bacchus and ordered two bagels explicitly for take away. As we opened the boxes for lunch we were really disappointed. The first bagel came with Brie, almonds and honey, but unfortunately the Brie was melted - and cold, melted Brie is not really delicious. Moreover, the slices were thin and... More

Dropped in to Bacchus to spend a couple hours between the wedding ceremony and reception - and encountered a place bursting with rare book finds, including one out-of-print I had been searching for in Calgary to no avail. Lunch consisted of an absolutely fantastic salad for my wife, and I elected to try the avocado and smoked salmon "dreadlox" sandwich.... More

Stopped in for a look around and found some really good book deals. The cold drinks from the cafe upstairs where quite different and great on a hot day. What a wonderful selection of reading material.

Hipper than hip! This is a really nice book store/cafe. Lot's of cool books and superb coffee (and I'm quite picky with coffee). For sure worth a visit if you pass through Golden!

We really love old bookstores, so we had to see this one. We were also looking for a place to get the first decent espresso in a few weeks, and found it all in this store. A must for bookstore lovers, especially the ones who also like breakfast and good coffee.

Being a book enthusiast, I have to enter every (second hand) book store I see. And this little book store not only sells new and second hand books, it also has a nice little lunch room at the second floor. Surrounded by books, you can have a little lunch. The menu is limited but surprisingly divers and the food is... More

My friend and I stopped by to grab a lunch to go on our way out of town. I got the Dread Lox panini and she got the turkey wrap. Mine could have had less goat cheese (but that's a taste preference of mine). My friend commented that her wrap was quite dry and could have used a sauce of... More

We were on our way from Revelstoke to Lake Louise and stopped off in Golden for breakfast, make sure you go into the town center. We happened to find this wonderful cafe and book shop by chance, make sure you go and look for it. Wonderful freshly hot baked delightful muffins and great coffee, great service.
