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.

Coffee is pretty good and the pastries are nice. Bookstore in there as well, not large. Very casual environment.

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 back rooms and learned more about their mission to youth and desire to provide employment... 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.

A warm, cozy place to enjoy a good book, good company, and good food. Inexpensive and inviting, the staff is very friendly as are the patrons. Not a wide menu, soup and coffee basically. But boy, what soup!
