"The Bookcafe is Relaxing, Fresh & Quirky."     

The Bookcafe was born in the year 2000 and first opened it's doors as a quaint little bookshop in York. We added the cafe element in 2001 in a tiny little basement - 16 seats only.

Derby has now been home to The Bookcafe for over 17 years. In 2009 we moved into 21 Cornmarket in the Cathedral qtr and were involved in the restoration of this beautiful Grade 2 listed building, originally built as a bank in 1879.

We promise a friendly, relaxing & inspiring setting whether you visit alone or with a group of friends & family. Great coffee, wine & food is our passion; whatever time of day you visit you'll find freshly made & quite often locally sourced dishes on our menus. We hold a 5 Star food Hygeine rating.

We also have another floor which is fully equiped for private functions of groups up to 100.
We are fully licensed from 7.30am until midnight.
