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!

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...

I came for coffee and my friend had a great, wholesome lunch. Found an old book friend too in the used selection - always worth a browse. Or just ask Caleb.

Love this books store, the food upstairs is wonderful especially the salmon/caper cream cheese bagel. Owners friendly and books plentiful and some very obscure choices. The floors creak, the stairs creak, such a wonderfully relaxing place!

Quaint little coffee shop upstairs in the book store. Good speciality coffees and fanastic muffins. Loads of second hand books to browse through whilst you are there.
