Great coffee and snacks, but the total charm is in hanging out in an old-fashioned bookstore...for as long as you want! Staff is friendly and welcoming, coffee is wonderfully strong.

We walked over here while staying with relatives... Did not try the coffee shop side of things, however the book shop was very worth it. Nice and quiet, and I found a Robert Alexander I was missing - for a mere 50 cents.

Cozy, warm café/bookstore in the heart of Newmarket. Complete with sofa, soft chairs and a few wooden tables this friendly coffee bar is waiting with open arms for visitors and regulars alike. The best dark roasted, French decaf around. Also, good tunes are always in the air and locals are open for a chat. Alone or with a friend, this... More

Outstanding coffee and tea beverages, beautifully served and presented. Friendly service. Comfortable, ecclectic atmosphere for a solo visit or a small group. And with the wide selection of books, there's even more to love!
