it's like thai coffee but way better and I love shopping at a non-profit book focused community space that is family and pet friendly.

After strolling the streets of Langley, I stopped by for a cup of tea & a soft chewy molasses cookie! The Commons offers a variety of fresh baked treats, soups, and sandwiches. Browse the bookstore, sit inside or out. Also, I noted a welcome place...More

They made the best mocha I have ever had. Not really sweet and the coffee had great flavor. Book store looked nice but didn't really look around as I was just there for coffee but several people who were there seemed comfortable.

Loved this little combo bookstore/coffee shop. Nice seating by the fire. Great coffee and tasty treats. Wonderful outdoor seating for warm summer days. Located in the heart of Langley in a quaint little Craftsman cottage. Highly recommend!

Stopped in for a coffee and a sit down. Good coffee at reasonable prices, good staff and a nice atmosphere for relaxing. Definitely a place I'd go back and hangout with a book.

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.

Their advertisement for ice cream drew us in but then we discovered they had more than just ice cream. They serve as a book resource for the community, second-hand exchange of board games, and a place to interact with one another. We wandered to the...More

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.
