Great selection of new and used books. The cafe has good coffee and awesome home-cooked food. They are making an effort to be sustainable which is awesome!!

Great breakfasty items and sandwiches too. I had a London Fog and it was made to perfection! There are only a few tables here...peruse the bookshelves while you wait for your meal and hopefully, you'll find a gem (like we did!).

This is a real charmer on the edge of Golden. The bookstore is beyond charming, well organized and with something for everyone. The great coffee is upstairs with the freshly prepared food. We only discovered this on our last day in Golden, or I think...More
