Rick, I need to have information from you about the goals of the group that is meeting on "The Future of Little Switzerland." Are you meeting on Aug. 22 at 12 pm at the bookstore? If so, I will be there. The Board of the Little Switzerland Community Association is meeting on August 29 and any concerns you may have can be brought to our attention. Stanley Black, President, LSCA

Love, love, love your little shop. The atmosphere, a mix of fresh coffee, sugar, and gently loved books, was perfect. I did not want to leave, and I was down there during peak fall color (so that is saying alot). Long live your shop, so I can visit every year...preferably on a rainy day so I will not be so inclined to go outdoors.


Awful! We walk up to the check out with our items and I noticed a display of chewing gum: "I Kissed a Democrat" with a head in the mouth of a toilet. We immediately put our items back. Don't support a business with this type of unethical business practice. I don't care if you're republican or democrat! The BIG irony is that republicans are generally fucking idiots and don't read books. Other than that fictitious bible and the magician jesus.

Hi, My son and I stopped in today for a coffee and a look around. What a great bookstore! I wish I had more time to browse all the books. I'll be back when I have more time to look around the store. What a great find!

Your bookstore is absolutely amazing. I made my second visit to your store this past weekend after having been in the area last summer and discovering you. The quaint, rustic setting and cozy atmosphere are perfect. What a gem to find a store with such an extensive collection of titles old and new. I collect old books, and was quite impressed with the quality of some of the older books (like a 1912 children's book I found in EXCELLENT condition). I spent hours in your store and still wasn't ready to leave! Books and Beans will always be a stop for me when I vacation in the NC mountains, I just can't praise you enough. Also, the local art and antiques are interesting, and the coffee is indeed superb.

We were served by an extremely friendly and helpful barista. I didn't get her name, but she was petite with shorter hair and said she had just moved to the area recently. She was very warm and we really enjoyed chatting with her. Whatever you are paying her, give her a raise! She is good p.r. :)

Thank you for a wonderful experience, I hope we will always find your store there waiting for us on each new visit. :)

Hi beautiful barista,
You helped us out a lot the other day, looking up directions of how to get to Roanoke over the highway; Went even over to the neighbor to print out the map. How amazing is that!
Ingrid will always treasure the little Cardinal that you offered her. You were one of the most friendly and warm persons we met during our trip.
Wishing you all the best.
Peace and Joy,
Hans Manshoven & Ingrid Ivens
