Coffee/Book Lover Paradise!

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.

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.

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.
