Nice little book and coffee shop. Small-town at its finest. Great selection of coffee and drinks. Staff was friendly and fun. Highly recommended a stop on by.
Friendly staff. Old timey classic book store vibes. Some people may be turned off by the creaky floors, but I think they add to the charm. Grab a new read, a latte, and baked good and sit roof top overlooking the lake. What more could you want?!
We've shopped at Buffalo Books & Coffee a few times over the years, usually when someone has gifted us a card there that we need to use up. My experiences there have been mostly disappointing. They don't have a very good selection, and what they do have is over priced. The majority of their children and young adult books are newer books written in the last 5 to 10 years; no classics, and no older selections that have been loved for generations. You know how radio stations categorize songs by "fast burn" and "slow burn"? BB&C has all the newest trendy "fast burn" books. I guess if that's what you're looking for this would be a good place for you. The only thing positive thing I can say is that they do offer to order certain books in for you, which is how we've used up our gift cards through the years. I'd give the store 2 stars because I'm an avid book lover and coffee makes my blood run. (Haha!) So everything in me *wants* to support a small town bookstore, but now they have announced a deal breaker: the prominent flag on their front window. I will no longer support BB&C because they want to make their politics and beliefs more important than their business. I finally decided to publicly post my 1 star review after driving past their shop a few days ago, because they want to publicly declare their controversial beliefs and all cards are being shown, I guess.
Great coffee and huge selection of books! The YA and kids sections are expansive and brought me back to my younger days, and the upstairs has a plethora of reference books for the outdoors, as well as trending novels, newly released books, local authors, and all manner of genres. (Plus a whole tower of golden books!)
I loved the book selection! My kids enjoyed that thier books were all on a separate floor and felt very grown up about getting thier own books. Everyone was very nice and helpful when asked. I did not get any coffee on this trip, but maybe next time!
