There’s nothing better than curling up with a good book and a warm beverage, and at Mandolin Book & Coffee Co. you can do both.

The cozy shop in the heart of Highlands is a cafe/bookstore hybrid that should be a must-visit spot for any reader – or just anyone searching for a different sort of caf experience. Every day, the store  has a variety of baked goods to choose from, including scones and a daily selection of muffins. There are also a few savoury options – the tangy tomato basil soup is a daily staple, and perfect for the chillier fall weather.

And, when it comes to caffeinated beverages, Mandolin keeps things local with loose-leaf tea from Acquired Taste Tea and coffee beans from Catfish Coffee Roasters. Sip a brewed cup of the neighbourhood-appropriate Guatemala Highlands Medium Roast, find a new-to-you read from Mandolin’s used book collection, and enjoy a break from the daily hustle and bustle.
