This is the place for fancy coffee in Appomattox. A wide selection of freshly made brews and loose leaf tea as well as different types of quiche and baked goods. The bookstore is lovely and they host music every weekend.

We always make a stop in at Baine's Books whenever in town. Great atmosphere, books, coffee and easy to hang out. Hope to enjoy a evening when they have live music some day.

Baine's is a little bookstore, music shop, and coffee shop in downtown Appomattox. They've got a pretty good selection of used and new books, local history books, vinyl records, simple musical instruments, and musical instruction books. At the coffee counter, they'll fix you an expresso,...More
