With over 75,000 new and used titles on two floors to browse it might be best on a rainy-day! It was sunny and beautiful, so I didn't linger as long as I could have, but I did catch the impressive "Local Author" SHELVES (who knew Gold Beach had so many Authors?!) and purchased a book for my daughter.

A great spot to spend some time browsing hundreds of books, checking out their community bulletin boards, and enjoying coffee and muffins.

We make this place our go to place anytime we are in Gold Beach... The statue of Elvis greets you at the door and Marilyn Monroe is there also. Plenty of vintage books whatever your interests... Good coffee and lots of room to browse ... Two floors a stairway and an elevator...

Warning: If you love books you can get lost in this store--or spend a lot of money on some awesome, unique, and hard to find buys. I just love browsing in this store--there is always something new! And the coffee house is warm and inviting, with free WiFi, good coffee, excellent service, and lots of happy people--locals and travelers alike.... More

We popped in for a quick breakfast and coffee. Coffee did not disappoint and the biscuit was good and yummy. Breakfast burrito was so so. All in all a good quick stop locals here mainly so you know the coffee is good.

A great place to browse, books of all varieties and topics, fiction, non-fiction, pictorials all there. You will also be treated to a likeness of Elvis now. The adjoining coffee house also adds to the patina in which people, singles, couples, groups, and families can find something to enjoy, especially on those rainy blustery days.

I wasn't expecting the amount of rare and unusual books that I found here. What a great surprise! Also plenty of local authors and tons Oregon information.Quirky and a bit archaic. Love it! The café was a tiny bit disappointing with rude counter service and a burned espresso but the biscuit was delicious. Will absolutely visit again, as it has... More

Thanks for the kind words and appreciation of our bookstore. We come across more surprises everyday with the new (used) stock coming out. We look forward to you visiting again soon to explore some more. We are very sorry to hear about the rude counter service in the coffee house. We will pass on the feedback so it won't happen...

This small town book store has a very large selection of both new and used books. The books are organized by categories making it easy to find a particular book.

Very good selection of regional and very local subject matters. Most people over look the upstairs section. Many more up there. Grab a latte and a baked good at the coffee shop inside.
