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 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.

Nice place for lunch, in a relaxed atmosphere. Good coffee, the soups we had were tasty and packed with vegetables, very hearty food. Good place to sit back and browse their books. Worth a stop in Golden!

We've been stopping in Golden for lunch for years and I wish I had known about this place before! Real food and an experience to boot! You go upstairs and sit among the books while eating lovely fare such as lentil soup, bagels, seafood sandwich, and smoothie served by friendly book-lovers. My son found a second hand book to buy...
