Always a warm welcome from staff. Beverages and delicious treats available to enjoy while relaxing with a good book. Need a book? They have a wonderful selection of endless topics. Inviting seating upstairs in which to meet with friends, or sit quietly and read.

Love this book store!! Cozy friendly and what better to be surrounded by books. Such a good feel!!!
Right downtown Bend. Great for studying, meeting with friends, or business meeting. Upstairs has plenty of seating.

Dudley's is a great place to stop in and relax a bit after walking around town. They have a great selection of used books, and don't mind when you grab one with a cup of coffee and sit down to read for a while. If you have any questions about books or Bend, ask the proprietors-- they know a lot about both!

Wonderful book shop - the staff selections/recommendations are a nice touch, especially if you’re not sure exactly what you’re looking for. Friendly atmosphere and great little coffee bar, too. Worth a visit!

A sweet local bookstore that is warm and friendly, with a comfy coffeeshop. Upstairs there are lots of soft seats and a few nooks and crannies to sit in. A good place to get refreshed and find a tresure to read. There are even some magazines to read.

Thanks Eric, we really appreciate hearing that. We're all about the right book for the right person. Enjoy! If for some reason you get into it and it's not your thing, don't hesitate to bring it back and we'll be glad to swap it out for you.

While Dudley's has a wonderful assortment of books, a warm cozy ambience, and the most friendly, attentive wait staff, a bite into a homemade fresh blueberry scone put us over the top! This was a "melt in your mouth" experience of the best kind, with all of the flavors that pull you back to your childhood memories of delicious fresh baked goods! Sitting and taking in the unique beauty of Bend, Oregon, while enjoying the comfort and friendliness, not to mention the "tastiness" of Dudleys was a wonderful, inviting experience all around. Definitely a place to go and explore all the shop has to offer!
