    Fantastic Sunday Brunch

    We enjoyed a beautiful Sunday Brunch outside with our dog. Everyone was very friendly to our dog and he even got a treat. Fantastic bookshop and the food and cocktails were great.

    Our Pug Loved It

    She sat and listened to the music and we enjoyed wine! She could walk everywhere in the dog friendly store.

    So Sweet!

    I stopped in here to look at some books when I took Titus out for his birthday. One of the employees wanted to make sure Titus got a birthday treat. The employee even went outside with us so that Titus felt comfortable eating his birthday treat! It was so sweet and meant a lot to me as a dog mom.

    Doggo Approved!

    This place is great! So many books to pick from and great vibe. Sat inside on a cold afternoon with our dog and had tasty sparkling wine cocktails and played trivial pursuit. All the employees were sweet to our dog and brought him a treat. This place is a treasure!

    Perfect Afternoon

    So happy we found this recommendation here for our Asheville visit! A perfect split of champagne, an abundant cheese board, and dog lovers! It was cold outside (holiday week) so it's a blessing to find a dog friendly location INSIDE!

    Top choice wines and champagne drinks. Knowledgeable staff. A cool selection of books to peruse, and nicely arranged nooks for reading or visiting with friends. My dog Jackie loves it here.
