A logo for Cafe Books in Canmore, AB.

Well-described as “a sight to behold” as part of Chatelaine Magazine’s “11 of the Dreamiest Bookstores to Get Lost in Across Canada”, Café Books is Canmore’s beautiful, local independent bookstore. Grounded in a love of story, it features a new book section up front, filled with books by local authors and eclectic staff picks alongside a well-rounded selection of bestselling new releases, and Chapter Two in the back, which is a curated used book selection. All books are displayed in a homey and nostalgic atmosphere populated by antique furniture and carefully-selected book-themed gifts.

Canmore, a mountain town in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, is rich with published authors and a thriving art community that is heartily supported and nurtured by Café Books. The family-owned store offers free local delivery, special orders, a loyalty award program, book club services, gift cards, and bargain books; but above all, a contagious love of the books that surround them, in a space where customers are welcomed to escape into another world of adventure and imagination.

100 – 826 Main Street, Canmore, AB
