This is a great little bookstore. Great selection of beach reads, toys for the kids, and I especially enjoyed the huge selection of unique cards, which I stocked up on to use throughout the year.

This bookshop has a fantastic range of books for all the family, everyone found something to enjoy. We had a great afternoon tea here as well. If we lived near it, it would be a weekly visit for us....at least!

Loved the fantastic selection of books, coffees, cakes and snacks all in a 'slow living' style of enjoyment- no rush enjoyment with prompt service

Love the idea of a book shop/coffee bar! Would definitely come here again solo. Disappointed that they didn't have a breakfast menu as it was the only cafe open but never the less I enjoyed my coffee!

Nicest place I found to enjoy a coffee in Port Douglas, something relaxing and lovely being surrounded by books. Ask for two shots if you like your coffee a bit stronger - no extra charge.

Great coffee + great books - what more could you need? This is a lovely place to 'while away' an hour or two. Great selection of books (some complete with reviews).

A delightful bookshop and cafe. Their selection of books is first rate catering for a wide range of interests and specialities. Customer service is excellent as is the coffee. Well worth a visit.
