Our Story

McQuixote Books & Coffee, LLC, is a start-up used bookstore and specialty coffee and tea retail business in Louisville, KY. In this segment of Louisville’s cultural, arts, and retail coffee scene, we recognize there is an overabundance of coffee shops and a handful of bookstores, but there is nothing like what McQuixote Books & Coffee will offer: a place of community for college students, blue and white collar workers alike, adolescents, and retirees to interact and share ideas. McQuixote Books & Coffee will also be a haven for the community to display their art, speak their minds, and express themselves.
