Loved the vibe of this little place. Pass through a new book store on the first floor to some stairs to reach the cafe and used book selections. They serve up a nice latte, and offer some fresh and tasty sandwich options that would make a great lunch. A few little tables to sit at and enjoy the cozy space,... More

The book selection was fun. They had new and old books. The coffee shop upstairs was great and had some good food options. Staff was very friendly. They also have backcountry ski maps and guide books.

If you love books, this is the place to visit for a nice cup of coffee. We enjoyed the view from above looking out over the downtown while going over the extensive library of books. Enjoy!

We stopped in after being at the hill for the day, and this place offered exactly what we needed. We were able to relax and browse through the selection of new and old books while we waited for our food to be prepared. The menu had healthy options at a good price point, and the paninis were not too large... More

I was passing through golden after a a mining meeting with Canadian timberframe homes and wanted to get lunch before driving to Banff. I asked the mother outdoor gear store employee for a unique place to have lunch and he directed me to the bookstore and told me there was a great little cafe upstairs. I love little bookstores to...

I had two different baked good and loved both muffins--one with fresh peaches and another with zucchini and chocolate (my favorite). My traveling companion had a ginger carrot soup that he said was lovely. Charming relaxed place with slow but friendly service,

Let's start by stating that we ate three days in a row at the cafe and would have done it a fourth time if we had stayed another day! We read about Bacchus Cafe before we went in and we were intrigued by the various write-ups, we were just not prepared for how right they got everything. The bookstore inhabits... More

Through the bookstore and up the stairs to a hidden treasure. A lovely barrista and her espresso machine. Homemade goodies and excellently drawn espresso. She took interest and was engaged. She kept all the customers happy and kept the flow going effortlessly. Will return for sure.

I confess to being addicted to this great cafe upstairs golden's book store. I love it even more with what the new owner has done to improve it. Great staff, lots of seating, great oso negra coffee (best in kootenays), and amazing food. Have the glory bowl or yam slamwich and the raw vegan heavenly desserts. You will see why... More
