The Press – New Bookstore in Valpo

Fuel your mind and your soul with a good book and a cup of coffee at the newest Bookstore in Valparaiso, IN! Locally owned and operated, this Bookstore and Coffeeshop combo is the perfect addition to an already unique downtown to visit.

The Press has an inviting atmosphere where you are greeted by the wonderful staff and the colorful spines of the great selection of books the shop has to offer. In a world where everything seems to be moving online, The Press offers a respite from screens and a chance to slow down and appreciate the tangible pleasures of reading. Whether you’re a seasoned reader or just starting out, a trip to the press is a worthwhile experience.

One of my favorite things (besides the coffee..we will get to that) is the cozy, vintage vibe of the shop. Once you pick out a new book from their great selection of genres, there are plenty of spots to sit and get lost in your new read. Don’t see what you are looking for in the store? You can check out there online selection or request a special order item! Browse The Press site here. Another thing I like is their loyalty rewards program. For every $100 you spend, you get a $10 gift certificate for your next purchase!

Ok, let’s get to the coffee.

Along with classic brews, they have a selection of seasonal creations. I tried out the Shake the Frost and highly recommend. Brown Sugar shaken espresso with cinnamon cold foam…yummm. Pair your locally roasted cup of joe with one of their locally made bagels or pastries.

I definitely will be back to try more of the seasonal creations like the Botanical Tonic. More of tea person? They have you covered too. See their coffee menu here.

With the warmer months approaching, you can also enjoy The Press patio. They will also be hosting wine nights at the shop featuring the local LambStone Cellars Winery. This just adds to the unique experience of this shop. Keep up to date with the events and The Press news by following them on Facebook here.

Whether I need a caffeine boost, new read, or cozy spot to work on my next blog post, The Press is going to be my new go to spot. Besides the shop itself, I love the local vibe that this business conveys and that they also support other local businesses. The downside of the The Press? Is a purely selfish reason. I can’t get my fix on Mondays, but everyone needs a day of right?

Thank you for reading and see you on the next blog!
