Fun Coffee shop with unique books and gifts

The guy making the coffee was really good! We also ordered a blueberry scone (rich and buttery) and a cinnamon roll (not over sweet and very tasty). We browsed the books and gifts. It was a fun little place to relax.

A great place to while away some time having good coffee and food and browsing around the bookshop. You really get the feeling that you're supporting "bricks and mortar" book stores and for us it's the most atmospheric cafe in town

This book store has a great selection of books, especially Western. There are lots of reviews written on cards by the employees. A great spot to browse.

Located in downtown Steamboat Springs, this cozy little bookstore has such a charming feel. Books for all ages. A lovely little cafe counter with coffee drinks. They encouraged browsing. Found some great greeting cards there too.

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!
