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

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.

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

Great coffee, cozy place to read. Lots of books. Wifi is strong. They sell a variety of items for children, toys, books, unusual puzzles. Great place to browse and hang out.

Great bookstore, little cafe, good food and snacks and coffee. Spend done time, wander around, check out the upstairs for cheap used books. Linger a bit and take a break from your adventures in steamboat.
