    Great outing with my dog!

    I love this store! There’s nothing better than being able to spend time with my dog while I pick up some books. Everyone there is super friendly, no one rushes you, and everyone always seems happy to see my dog. Can’t ask for anything better!

    New favorite spot!

    We kept driving by saying that we should stop. When we found out the pup could come in with us we knew we had to go! The staff could not have been more friendly. They cared about getting to know you. There were a lot of regulars and it was clear to know why! We will definitely be back!

    Great coffee, great atmosphere, great people

    Books and Company is my go-to study spot, and my go-to weekend relaxation spot. Everyone inside is so friendly and helpful. They make great drinks and have great snacks. Obviously the best part of Books and Company is that my pup is allowed to come sit inside with me (and they even give her treats when she comes)!
