Darvil's bookstore is one of the best small town bookstores I have seen in a while. It is very well stocked with local and nationally famous works and is home to the best coffee in Eastsound. If you are looking for a great place in Eastsound to spend a fun afternoon reading, you should come here.

I miss bookstores like this back home. This is the kind of bookstore a reader dreams about. Carefully chosen titles with people running the store who love to read. I could stay here all day! And the coffee is sublime. No joke. I had it during my first visit a month ago and couldn't get it out my head. So... More

Best coffee on the island by mutual consensus of my coworkers, my favorite place to buy gifts for friends and family off island, great staff and reasonable prices. I can always find good books & music here. I love supporting this local business and highly recommend checking it out.

When we first went in, I was concerned at what seemed like a sparse number of books, but oh, was I wrong! This is one of the best bookstores I've been in! There is often only one copy of a book out, but the selection is amazing! I could have just taken my arm and swiped off a shelf of... More

They had a wonderful collection of books and curios. We wandered the isles browsing and found some wonderful cards and a Christmas present. The store also has a coffee bar in the back.

We actually stopped in for coffee, but ended up shopping. Lovely selection. Fantastic staff. Like a little shop we visited in Nantucket.

I may have to start commuting from Boulder, CO to Orcas Island, WA just for the outstanding espresso that is served at this charming bookstore in Eastsound! My husband had it hot, I had it cold, but either way, the latte was just right! We shared a delicious, fine-textured, lemon poppyseed muffin to go with it. Did I mention that... More

Well-stocked with thoughtful titles and other merchandise. My coffee was very tasty too. Definitely worth a visit if you are in town.

Bibliophiles will love this small but fully stocked bookstore with a coffee/tea bar in the back. In the center of town and visitors who want to just lay on the couch and laze as they read and look out the windows at the incredible sights will find plenty of good reads here. Nice spot, they will order anything you want,... More
