The Book Cafe is a juice bar and coffee shop with smoothies and 100% freshly-squeezed 'Naked' juices. We also have a selection of used books for sale and exchange. We are located in the area of Rawai / Nai Harn.Step inside and be welcomed by the aroma of coffee, freshly baked cookies and aromatic teas which make a great combination with the sight of so many stories to delve into.The area is quiet and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed, have morning coffee, a Naked juice or one of our speciality smoothies in the garden surrounded by the mountains, sit inside for an afternoon’s chat and sample some of our home-bakes or a fresh salad, or have an early evening glass of wine or cold beer.Make yourself comfy on the sofa and read a book, relax under the umbrellas in the garden and enjoy the view, or grab a floor cushion and customize your own sitting area in the chill-out room.
