During our week in Daramiscotta, we shopped here several times and got coffee from the cafe every day. I shop in indie bookstores during my work travels throughout the country and this is probably the best small-town bookstore I've ever seen. It has a wide selection of literature, history, science, etc etc -- more than just best-sellers, but lots of those too if that's what you're looking for. There's a really good local section if you need guidebooks. Also lots of gifts, toys, games, puzzles, art supplies. The coffee in the cafe is really good and they even have some gluten-free baked goods.

One of the better book stores that I've been to in a while. It's a big place with a great selection of books and other odds and ends, and the attached cafe is a nice touch. You could easily spend a few hours here browsing.

The cafe, after having been closed for a while, reopened with an upgraded pastry selection. The book store is terrific. Indy book stores have to try harder and they do. Grab a paper and retire to the cafe to have a cinnamon bun which are worth the trip in and of themselves. In general the selection isn’t large but everything is excellent. The coffee, sadly, is just okay.

Visiting here reminds you of the lost art of the little old book shop. The service was helpful and not intrusive. So glad we stopped in for a look.

Thankful for the fantastic selection of books by diverse authors, authors of Color, and I was thrilled to find the new Marlon James book, Black Leopard, Red Wolf on the shelf in staff picks after I had visited 4 other bookstores only to find it missing or unheard of. So happy this wonderful place is nearby. And great little coffee shop next door with perfect window seats.
