A place for friends to gather since 2002, the Book Nook & Java Shop is the heart and soul of Montague. We offer the most current New York Times bestsellers as well as intriguing “new finds” to ensure a stimulating book-shelf perusal every time you visit. Whether you are looking for a popular new fiction read, current events, a cook book or children’s books we’re sure you will be delighted in our appealing selections. If you can’t find what you are looking for on our shelves you can select from our over 40,000 titles on our website or have a staff member special order the book for you. Join friends, surf the web, or curl up in a comfy chair with a book while you enjoy a hot beverage from our espresso bar or wine from our Best Cellars Wine Bar. We also boast a delicious selection of home baked pastries, paninis, soups, wraps, and tappas. The Book Nook & Java Shop is a hot spot for live music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings with local musicians presenting a variety of styles from rock to folk or blues. Once a month is “Open Mic Night” where you are likely to experience an array of talent from storytelling, poetry, prose to live music. The first Wednesday night of the month is Classical Music night. The Book Nook & Java Shop has the reputation of being a “must visit” location for touring best-selling authors.
