How did you come to own an independent bookstore?
We met and became friends in college, and after that we were seeking a space that would bring together two of our passions---books and beer. Eventually, we decided to create that space ourselves, and the idea behind Cream & Amber was born. After several years of planning, we found a perfect space on Mainstreet in Hopkins. At Cream & Amber, we carry a curated selection of new and used books including new releases and local authors.
What should customers expect to find when they walk in your door?
Cream & Amber is a bright, welcoming space designed to feel comfortable for all community members. Our bookshelves line the entire right side of the shop, and on the other side you'll find our bar, where we serve beer, coffee, and food (in non-Covid times).
