We stopped to see if there was a cafe that sold pastries (there was), but it's so full of books to look at that I forgot to find something to eat. I was able to find a great book for the sale price of $1!

WOW, what friendly and helpful staff. From field books to sheet music, they had quite the selection. We were looking for old Sinatra sheet music, and they did not disappoint. Had some great espresso and some muffins and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

This place was a great surprise...a nice bookstore with a coffee shop inside. They have a very good selection of books, and some nice music CD's, and art. They have both new and used books as well as a very nice Rare book room.

We love to visit local bookstores while traveling and Gold Beach Books did not disappoint. The selection in this new/used bookstore is limited given its size, but it was fun to browse and we each walked away with something good to read. They have a really good section on Oregon authors and everything Oregon. They also have a really good... More

I visited the coffee house at 8 am on a Sunday morning. I enjoyed the staff, they were friendly and helpful. The fresh baked goodies were excellent. They provide free wifi. I appreciated the art on display as I made my way to the restroom. I noticed they have a number of regulars they knew by name. If I lived... More

With over 75,000 new and used titles on two floors to browse it might be best on a rainy-day! It was sunny and beautiful, so I didn't linger as long as I could have, but I did catch the impressive "Local Author" SHELVES (who knew Gold Beach had so many Authors?!) and purchased a book for my daughter. Rachel's Coffee... More

A great spot to spend some time browsing hundreds of books, checking out their community bulletin boards, and enjoying coffee and muffins.

We make this place our go to place anytime we are in Gold Beach... The statue of Elvis greets you at the door and Marilyn Monroe is there also. Plenty of vintage books whatever your interests... Good coffee and lots of room to browse ... Two floors a stairway and an elevator...

Warning: If you love books you can get lost in this store--or spend a lot of money on some awesome, unique, and hard to find buys. I just love browsing in this store--there is always something new! And the coffee house is warm and inviting, with free WiFi, good coffee, excellent service, and lots of happy people--locals and travelers alike.... More
