Truly appreciate all the new books and other collections. Inspired by the photos of great authors on the walls. Coffee bar and beverages makes this a great place to meet with friends or groups. Upstairs is great: couched for lounging and tables for large groups.

We were wandering around the historic area of Bend when we found this bookstore. I had a cup of chai that was different: creamy, not a standard "tea", and very tasty. One of the managers went out of his way to look for a book...More
