Sidekick Coffee & Books has been inspired by many people. Sidekicks are often my favorite characters in fictional stories. They are usually the character with the moral compass for the main character or play a vital role in teaching a lesson. Some of my favorite fictional sidekicks are Piglet from Winnie the Pooh, Martha from El Deafo, and Trixie’s Knuffle Bunny.
Our name comes from those closest to my heart—my children, who are my sidekicks whether they think so or not. Each one has brought a certain aspect to the shop.
With my background in elementary education, I know how important it is for kids to see that reading takes place in many different formats and so can learning. This is why storytime and other multi-sensory experiences are so important at Sidekick. People learn differently, and at Sidekick, we embrace it!
We offer many amenities including family-friendly restrooms, a recreation room full of books where you can watch your children read and climb in hexagon reading nooks from a window seat for yourself.
We strive to bring you the best-tasting coffee and the best selection of children’s books in the area. We hope to be part of the community and your lives for a long time to come.
