What You'll Get
The brain extracts vital nutrients for optimal body function first from food, then from books, using the eyes to gnaw on knowledge-laden words, which the internal hamster wheel converts into energy. Stuff your pupils with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of books and café fare at Wendel's Bookstore & Café in Fort Langley.
Wendel's nourishes hungry minds and bodies as an independent bookstore and fresh-food café. Hand-picked titles starting at $2.95 line the establishment's walls, free-standing shelving, and abundant word troughs. The staff focus on the individual guest to cull the right read for each printed-word wooer, including The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest ($25.60 hardcover), Kate: The Making of a Princess ($19.99 paperback), and a variety of new releases ($7.99–$37.99). Though today’s Groupon is good for in-store purchases only, bibliophiles may browse the store's inventory ahead of time by yelling search terms at the store's online bookstore.
The café lavishes readers with a menu of fresh fare made in-house that eschews preservatives and accommodates dietary needs with wheat-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian options. An outdoor patio puts patrons in prime reading, people-watching, or espionage-conducting position to enjoy local scenery along with breakfast selections such as organic blueberry pancakes ($9) and omelettes ($10). Lunch and dinner selections span hand-held bites such as the chicken-and-avocado wrap ($10) and heartier dishes such as wild-salmon-and-asparagus salad ($12). Coffee and espresso creations range from lattes and cappuccinos ($3) to mocha frappes ($4.25) and are brewed with beans from local roaster Moja Coffee and water from the local fountain of youth.
