About Us

Are you a bookworm just like we are? Do you like to just sit down in a quiet place and immerse yourself in stories that take you to faraway places?

If you do, then The Hours Cafe & Bookshop in London welcomes you to join in the enjoyment. Not only do we have a nice and relaxing cafe where you can sip a cup of coffee to unwind, but we also have a bookshop with a wide range of titles ranging from children’s books to biographies.

We started out with just the simple idea of combining two different kinds of passion– literature and culinary arts. We then saw a small building at the corner of the street and thought that maybe this kind of cafe was best suited as a hole in the wall sort of place to get the best, most relaxing ambiance. The result was a hybrid cafe/bookshop that we named The Hours Cafe & Bookshop.

No matter what genre you’re looking for, we definitely have it here. If we don’t have what you’re looking for, then you can let us know and we’ll custom order for you. You can then pick it up when it arrives.

When you enter The Hours Cafe & Bookshop, we’d like you to feel at home with all of the books available for you to read. We also have a lot of workshops and literary events that you can join so that you can meet the rest of the community members. We also have events for kids so you can bring your children to our cafe so that they can have fun and learn a lot of new things.

We’d like to think of you all as members of our big bibliophile family. As long as you love books and coffee, then you’d definitely love it here.

Enjoy!
