With the crazy weather and what seems like endless work in front of you, you may need a quiet place to relax and cool down. Langley is home to many different hideaway quiet places, but we wanted to highlight these 4 in particular!
The Creative Bookworm
If you’re looking for some rare books that are hard to find, this is your place to go! The Creative Bookworm is a family owned and operated business that has been open for over 14 years! This bookstore has been built on the community by residents trading in books and the staff finding rare books online. Every book is well taken care of and in the best condition possible. The Creative Bookworm also has a cafe where you can sit down and grab a specialty coffee while reading your new finds. If you’d like to check if they have a particular book in stock, their website has most of their selection. If the book happens to be very old, its best to call them or stop by to see if they have it. Check their website below for their inventory, along with their hours of operation!
Water Shed Arts Cafe
This Cafe’s mission is to “set a table for humanity where everyone is loved, welcomed, nourished, and celebrated.” If you’re looking for a cafe that deeply appreciates local artists, the Water Shed Arts Cafe is where to go!
