Coffee is very good here. Great place to sit and read, find a new book log onto your computer or just read the paper. Lots of locals go here.

We absolutely love this store. The book selection is great, the shop personnel is super friendly and helpful, and best of all, they have a small coffee shop with little tables so you can peruse books while you sip your java! It's everything a bookstore...More

A fairly average coffee shop. There are better ones in town (7th and oak) Pastries fine and coffee fine. Just didn't stand out

Wherever I go I look for small, local, indie bookstores just like this one. It's a small place jam-packed with a wonderfully diverse selection of books in a spectrum of subjects, nicely arranged (if a bit claustrophobic). The teeny cafe sells pastries, coffees, teas, &...More

Off the Beaten Path is the cutest little bookshop. It is very small and quaint, however, it has an amazing assortment of every kind of book one could want. I love to go there even when I am not looking to buy something. It is...More

The atmosphere was great! The staff was very friendly and a relaxing environment, but the coffee was terrible. I took one sip and threw it out. Good thing the coffee pricing was cheap so I didn't care that I wasted my money. Would visit again...More

This is the perfect combination - good coffee and treats and books to boot. Very helpful and friendly staff and some cute gifts as well. Don't miss the second hand books upstairs or the brownies.

I don't know how they fit so many of my favorite things into this one store. A Game of Thrones reference at the front door, a sweet and spicy latte called "Mr. Darcy", and a free cookie day once a week (sorry, can't remember exactly...More

Better coffee and pastries for less just down the street. Bad attitude from the "barista" on my last visit. Go buy a book, but take a pass on the food and drink.

It was my favourite place to go during my college years in Steamboat, with friend or on my own. They always had a wide selection of books and a cozy area to sit curling up with a book or get coffee and a dessert. Super...More
