A terrific local non-chain bookstore - beautifully curated and laid out. In the center is a coffee bar with terrific lattes and other coffee drinks (including creative boozy ones). Pastries too. Free WiFi. A great place to hang and calm down.

This is our go-to coffee shop when in Steamboat. They have great creative espresso coffees and yummy pastries, and it's fun that it's inside a book store/gift shop.
