Always enjoy going here and checking out whatever new books they have. I always find amazing deals on used books and they're always in good condition. Then it's fun to get coffee and a something to eat with it. A quiet and peaceful place.

It is a favorite spot to stop for coffee and conversation. You are surrounded by new and used books in a casual, friendly atmosphere. Families and friends like to gather here between sightseeing and shopping.

A warm, cozy place to enjoy a good book, good company, and good food. Inexpensive and inviting, the staff is very friendly as are the patrons. Not a wide menu, soup and coffee basically. But boy, what soup!

Books, coffee and giving back the community all in one stop? Hells yes sign me up. My coffee was fantastic. Fantastic enough to go to twice. My mocha was great. Right balance of good coffee and good chocolate. My second Americano was also fantastic.

Love this place. It's a book store, reading room and eatery all rolled up into a cozy space. They serve delicious ice cream as well. I haven't had anything but their ice cream but it will be a place to return to on my next visit. Love books!

Great coffee and super nice people. We stopped in 3 times during our 4 days in Langley. They had great vegan soup on one of our visits!
