I stopped in a couple of times for coffee. The first time they had so many gluten free pastries and they were delicious. Sadly, they were completely out on my second visit and the baker wasn't coming in that day. Please make more, they are...More

My daughter and I ducked in here and stayed over an hour. The books looked as though they had been placed with tender loving care by employees who love books. Many had reviews or write ups from employees and my daughter was taken with the...More

Thank you for sharing your visit to Off the Beaten Path. Nothing matters to us more than when parents and children share their love for books. Perhaps your daughter would like Reading on Ranches camp run by BookTrails? see mybooktrails.org.

What a great place to search for gifts. Everyone can use a book. My son got a coffee and said it was good. Also was great to find a restroom. Would have loved to sit and relax upstairs.

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.

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

Brooke, we're really sorry about your coffee. We should have noticed that you didn't like it and offered to make you another. If you're still in town, please give us another chance - just stop at the cafe, tell our barista you're Brooke from the...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.
