Stopped here for a caffeine boost. The coffee was great and they have lots of tables and chairs out front to enjoy the island air. They sell other thing as well and I saw plenty of people with happy faces.

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!
