Close to Noosaville, the river and other places to eat. Great place to have browse, an Nice coffee and sample the lovely cakes. We stopped by a few times and the coffee was consistently good and service was great.

This is a combined coffee shop and book store and they had a good range of current books and novels. The coffee was good but not special Service was friendly and i hope this place works.

Coffee and books - two of my favourite things. Books and gifts are over priced but they have the right idea

Whilst walking along the river walk my partner spotted this little gem. Not only do they have great coffee it is a bookshop as well. There is a good little outdoor area outside to chat away the hours or read that newly purchased book.

I am a coffee addict. Came across this coffee shop when we were holidaying recently in Noosa. They make the best coffee seriously ! I enjoyed looking over the book titles while i was waiting for coffee as well. Wish they were set up here...More

What a sad day for Noosaville. This great little book shop and meeting place just didn't make it financially, but it did touch our hearts and minds.... Thank you to the great ladies who gave it their best.

No....No...No....we are not gone. We have moved around the corner to 203 Gympie Terrace and are very much up and running as always. Please come and visit us in our awesome new location by the river next time you are in town. Lu & Nat
