About Us

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, Ron and Hermione from Harry Potter, and Trixie’s Knuffle Bunny.

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 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.
