  • Love the coffee, couches, staff, atmosphere .... Oh yeah and the books, this is a bookstore right?! : ) This is an essential stop for us every time we visit the island. We like to stay at the Landmark on Orcas Island, and then walk down to the shop's like Darvill's. In the winter, it's nice to come here and cozy up watching the sound roil, while you drink your coffee and read something amazing. Good selection of books. Real books. Made with paper too.
  • As an islander I can confidently say that this bookstore really captures the island vibe! There are always locals chatting near the coffee shop and there is a wide selection of books for how small the store is. You can find virtually anything for your reading needs!
  • Real story on the coffee: Batdorf and Bronson. So great beans, but hardware and it's operator have seen better days, and the result is about mediocre. Also note they do not do iced drinks in colder months. If you were poking through reviews as I was looking for where you were going to get you morning cup of Joe, I'd keep looking.
  • What a sweet place, a magical little bookstore on a magic island. Staff are very friendly and the coffee is excellent.
  • Quaint shop by the sea with a mostly contemporary collection. Love the views from the children's section. A great place to pass a couple winter hours.
