I highly recommend breakfast at the Book Cafe - home made granola, yoghurt and fruit, great coffee, fresh juices. Welcoming and friendly staff and owner. Very relaxing place. Good wifi and a dog called 'panda'. What's not to like?

try here protein shakes, breakfast smoothie and banana bowls - it's amazing and very healthy. Cappuccino is also very good.

I've been to this little unassuming cafe around ten times while in Rawai/Nai Harn. That means that almost each day I've been in the area, I've been at Book Cafe. I look for chill places where it's easy to mingle and relax. I've found that here and it's even better that Bev (the host) provides fantastic food, shakes, and coffee.... More

Beautiful setting just off the main road... Once inside you'd feel you were not near a road. Had a veggie omlette which was well made... Chilled there for a little while as that's the kind of place it is...calm and friendly. Chatted to the owner who is a charming lady.... Would recommend if you fancy a quiet coffee & snack....

I don't understand what took more than 1 hour to make 2 fresh juices and 2 sandwiches....place looked great, good menu but the timing was awful. They said they were really busy but it didn't look like it, people who arrived after us got their meal before us. Poor service.

Great place. Brilliant location for breakfast and to chill out for an hour or two. British owner who offers some home comforts. Breakfast etc. Really nice feel to the place set amongst the garden area. Food was great. We ate here a few times for lunch breakfast. Don't miss it if you are in the area.

I've visited the Book Cafe several times and each time there's something new offered. Whether it's the veggie chilli bowl or a gluten free cake, Bev is imaginative and furthermore charges reasonable prices. I love the ambience here, the books and the steady stream of friendly locals and tourists coming in to hang out. Breakfast sets are excellent too.
