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

I love to come here on a snowy day with my book, grab a coffee and head up to the loft area. It is always warm and cozy. The coffee is great and if you need anything along the lines of books or journals come here! They also have a great card selection of local artists photos and such. Great... More

This cute little store satisfied two of my weaknesses - books and coffee. The coffee was very good and they have a good selection, the treats were fresh and tasty. The staff were friendly and efficient even when extremely busy. I love the eclectic collection of books to browse while waiting for order. Upstairs has lots more seating and is... More

What's not to like? Love this bookstore, love the staff recommendations, love the cafe, love the used books section (but wish it was bigger).

I love this bookstore! I am a sucker for independent bookstores, especially with a cute cafe attached. Great coffee, wonderful atmosphere and such friendly people. It's impossible to walk in and not feel welcome. There was a chipmunk that ran into the store in the day we were there, and the shop owners were trying so hard it safely herd... More

Good coffee, good danish and nice people. And an eclectic assortment of books to choose from. The upstairs reading area is a nice hideaway while sipping your coffee, very little foot traffic and free wifi.

Well stocked book store with a coffee bar. What more does one need?! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the books on display. The coffee and sweet treats were tasty and freshly made. The chocolate chip cookies were fabulous.

If you need the feel and look of real books, this is the place. It also has a wonderful selection of unique gifts for adults and kids. There are little nooks in this store as well as an area outside for reading. The clerks are book-o-philes so they can answer questions about current best sellers. The store also features "best...

I love this place. It's close to the bike path. It's locally owned and it is intimate because of it. The pastries are good as is the coffee and it's fun to browse while you wait for your coffee.
