A mixture of dusty second hand books and a few new ones, I think Baines offers more in the evenings with music. However, we popped in for lunch. As stated in their web page it's a limited menu so a panini (ok) and a slice of microwaved quiche (not ok) sufficed. It came after about 10 minutes. Conveniently located opposite... More

Came here with an hour or two to spare one afternoon after work. Read reviews and love books, so I figured this would be a nice stop. If you're a bookie, there's plenty to choose from, along with a big selection of vinyl records. I spent about an hour looking through the shelves, ending up with two books. I needed... More

Quirky little place for good food. Wraps, sandwiches, soups. Nice friendly service. A little slow because 1 guy did it all but very worth it.

I wish I'd had more time while I was in Appomattox to spend here. What a comfy way to spend a lazy day. Books, tasty coffee, and friendly employees. Definately going back!

This as a flashback moment for us. Yes, and old school coffeehouse with books for sale... and great coffee. I found several new publications as gifts for friends. Be sure to stop in and spend some time here.

Was in town on a road trip with a friend. We luckily came across this place and found out there would be live music on a Monday night. Had a light supper which was good. There was a small crowd for the music which was great. I'm not a coffee drinker but there was a good selection of non coffee... More

Enjoyed an incredibly delicious sandwich in the midst of a cozy bookshop full of antiques and musical instruments. Specialized coffees and teas, books to peruse, and a wonderful old-fashioned atmostphere. LOVELY experience!

We've been to Appomattox twice, and Baine's is really a revelation. In addition to being a great coffee shop, latte house etc, it's a blue grass emporium and book store. The place sells books, cds, sheet music, instruments, and hosts jam sessions. Really neat place. Put it on your list of stops!
