Definitely "on the beaten path" for us every time we visit Steamboat

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!

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.
