“Attractive, comfortable, and fun”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

If you like your books laid out in a way that attracts your eye to good reads, a comfortable setting where you can comfortably sit and skim through books, drink a coffee or hang with friends, this is a great stop in Midcoast Maine.

“Don't miss this wonderful book shop and cafe”
Reviewed December 7, 2011

There is nothing as special as an independent local bookshop! After 10 years living in the lovely twin villages of Newcastle and Damariscotta, we've moved to central PA. And oh, how I miss the bookshop! Sometimes, it's easy to take such a gem for granted. The staff is so helpful and cheerful. Customer service is a way of life there. The selection of books about Maine is extensive; Maine authors are featured-you will come away with a treasure to keep Maine always close in your memories. The children's book selection is special and very large. Fiction, non-fiction-hard cover, paperback-it's all there or they'll order it for you. The cafe's warm and welcoming with the wonderful aroma of freshly brewed coffee beckoning. Of course, there's free wifi to help you stay connected. If you are in the mid-coast Maine area, this is a "must" for just about everyone and it's right in the center of town.
