is a rare find. It's one of the few independent coffee shops left in Victoria, which in combination with the used bookstore creates a funky welcoming atmosphere hosting art shows, live music, community scrabble and chess nights, Tea Leaf Reading, readings, and club meetings. An anachronism in the severity of modern coffee chains, we provide a comfortable friendly setting for latte sipping, made to order sandwich (BLT's, Smoked Turkey, Vegetarian, veggie / gluten-free chili, or vegan cookie munching, and book perusing - yes, the BOOKS are for sale.
