These days, it's easier to find a cafe pulling shots of artisanal coffee than one stocked with a pile of good reads. Whatever happened to the ready pile of glossies you could dive into while waiting for that one friend who's always running late? At The Book Café, you won't find yourself waiting in vain. Their veritable library of books, magazines, and newspapers trumps the roll call of dishes on the menu, giving you plenty to feed your mind with.
A spread of locally-published magazines arrives fresh off the press and sits alongside cult favourites such as Tyler Brûlé's Monocle. If you're looking to get up to speed on global affairs, international broadsheets and their weekend supplements (think The Sunday Times Magazine) are available, too.
Longer reads await those who plan to cosy up with a worthy weight in hand. Works of fiction include titles from best sellers lists while non-fiction tomes range from travel guides to cookbooks and memoirs.
Foodwise, tuck into popular brunch favourites the likes of eggs blackstone — a variation of eggs benedict that swaps ham for bacon — and french toast topped with bananas and maple syrup. Staying off carbs? The chicken and avocado salad makes for a flavourful alternative.
