Cool Coffee Shop!

If you like cool, unique coffee shops with little nooks and crannies to read books and enjoy your drink, this is right up your alley. The coffee drinks are very tasty and the atmosphere is just "Colorado cool." I could spend a few hours here, easily.

Hear from another store owner about this wonderful coffee shop located in the book store. My family loves book, and we also love coffee. We had a white chocolate, mocha and hot chocolate (the best I have ever tasted) very good.

This coffee shop/bookstore is fantastic! Great coffee- many options, new and used books, and tables to sit at. They also have a great baked goods and foods section. Definitely worth a trip in here if you are staying in Steamboat!

I could spend hours here. Fantastic selections in a laid back atmosphere. Purchased water at the cafe, as we had just had our coffee, but will definitely be back.

This place is complete with a great bookstore and a fabulous little restaurant. The pastries are just amazing. Definitely try out the cinnamon roll and a cupcake. Mmm! The staff is very nice and helpful.

This is a great little bookshop run by some lovely local Steamboat residents. A cafe is incorporated into the bookshop so you can immediately start to peruse your purchases over a coffee and cake.

I love to read & I love bookstores!! "Off The Besten Path" did not disappoint. Not only did it offer a variety of good reads, it also served up great coffee, pastries, wine & a cozy, comfy atmosphere in which to settle in & relax for a bit. On a cold, blustery day in January, " Off The Beaten Path"... More
