"A little treasure!

We loved going into this shop for coffee and browsing for books. We met lovely people who were very friendly and shared information about the books they were reading and some of their favorites. The atmosphere at this place allows for this type of exchange. So chill and cozy!" Boca Raton

What about our store? We are a full service, independent bookstore, with extensive collections of new fiction, literature, history, memoirs, and young adult books. We feature a large children’s selection of books and activies, and our famous kids book nook for our youngest readers! We carry the Indie Bound selections, NY Times bestsellers, and as a sponsor of  Literary Sojourn (www.literarysojourn.com), a selection of the Literary Sojourn authors.

In addition to our carefully curated inventory of books, we stock wonderful greeting cards, games, puzzles, journals, art supplies, and a varied assortment of unique gifts. We can help you select the perfect gift, wrap it and even ship it.

"creative coffees

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." shalr623

Our coffeehouse serves the best coffee drinks in town, pastries, iced blended drinks, plus wine and locally handcrafted beer. We are pleased to be serving Seedhouse Coffee, roasted locally in Steamboat Springs, CO. 

"I shop here each time I am in Steamboat and love this quirky, well organized, book loving, using every nook and cranny book store.

It is a fantastic space to be in and enjoy.

It is delicious.

Right, it has an amazing bakery and coffee shop in it.

I had the over the top awesome gluten free blueberry muffin.

Buy a book!  It will be good for your soul."
