This was a great location for tea/coffee and book browsing, however it is now closed. As of this moment (September 2016) there is no bookstore in Rossland.

Rossland is a gem of a small town. We were touring southern B.C. and when we got to Rossland and drove down Washington Street we had to stop. We weren't hungry so I just had a latte and my father in law had a regular coffee. Best latte I've ever had. And I've had a lot of them. My fil's... More

This charming place. Not only does it have a great atmosphere, awesome coffee, teas and treats... the staff is so friendly and inviting. I often make special trips just to go and taste what is new there!

Love this place! It's cozy, the coffee is great, and they have a good selection of books, cards, kids games and local crafted jewellery. Next door there's a cute thrift shop open Wednesday's & Friday's 10-430.

Was glad that I decided to stop on a side street. The Book and Coffee combination almost always pulls me in, and this ended up being a treat of a coffee stop. Very friendly service.

Located on a side street off Rossland's main street, Cafe Books West is a very quaint little place. An impressive selection of books, special gifts and a cozy coffee/tea shop near the windows.

We love the shop and the seating in amongst the books. Great cakes and nice Illy coffee. There is a variety of goods and books on sale to browse will waiting and usually a good conversation with someone. Try it!

A gorgeous little place to spend some time reading, sipping and chatting with friends or spending time by yourself. Worth the visit if you like books, coffee, cakes and homely spaces...you won't be disappointed.
