  • Amazing atmosphere. Buy a book, then have a seat at the cafe section with a coffee to begin reading it. Has an inclusive vibe for all likes of people. The 'Blind Date' with a book is super fun if you like a little mystery behind the book your buying.
  • Pretty cool book store and coffee shop. Do yourself a favor and forget that Amazon ever existed. Nothing like buying a 25 dollar book and discovering you could get it for 10 cents.😀
  • Great bookstore! Lots of things to look at other than books, too. Nice cafe. Makes the store smell wonderful.
  • A beautiful, quiet, and quirky coffee shop/bookstore! It's right in the heart of downtown, so a great place to stop in to grab a drink and/or a small snack while you are walking the streets and adventuring!
  • This champagne bookstore is easily the most unique and eclectic mashup of places i've ever been. it has a certain romantic feeling and is captivating. Beyond that it's located in a beautiful space.

Where to stay in Asheville

To take advantage of the best Asheville has to offer without breaking the bank, stay at one of the city's small motels, many of which offer free breakfast buffets and plenty of secure parking. Asheville's historical district contains most of the city's bed and breakfasts, allowing you to stay within a short walk of downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment. The area also boasts numerous budget-friendly hostels, offering inexpensive private rooms for backpackers. For something completely different, rent an eco-friendly cabin in a wooded area just a short drive from the city.
