It's never too much trouble for the people who work here to help with reading advice. I bought a great book here to read by the pool and at the beach in Noosa. Great coffee. A good place to relax, sip a drink and read. The kids' section in the back is well-stocked, and the place has a good selection... More

It was great and I liked how they gave me a free bookmark whith each purchase. Great atmosphere right on the noosa river . Plenty of off street parking and a really good barista made coffee.

Dropped in for a coffee, sat outside in a small area that's actually takes up part of the parking area, their is a view across to the river, the coffee was really good.

A quirky little bookshop cafe quite easy to find if you're walking through the Main Street. There is a little lounge area outside with cool industrial type furniture if you want to drink in...

My favourite coffee in Noosa. Casual, comfy atmosphere to drink in or take away. Great selection of books, stationary and cards.

A quaint book store with not much room to manoeuvre. Perhaps that adds to its charm. Browse the books, then grab a coffee and cake.
