A Cozy Bookstore and Coffee Shop in Upper Tantallon, NS

We have over 13,000 pre-loved books in all categories for sale.

Whether you are a reader, a coffee klatcher, a crazy cat lover, a visitor to beautiful Nova Scotia, or all of the above, Otis & Clementine’s is your dream come true.

Since 2011, our bookshop outside Halifax, Nova Scotia has been keeping books out of landfills, to helping build a sustainable community, and to providing exceptional service to our customers.

We work with the rescue group South Paw Conservation NS to foster kittens and cats in a safe, temporary environment. One of our jobs as a foster is to socialize the cats so they will make great companions. We are happy to report we have homed 100% of the cats we have fostered, starting in May 2019.
