The best bookshops with cafes in London
The literary coffee-house is a historical institution: we've found its 2018 incarnation – the bookshop-cum-cafe. These places are just as brilliant for browsing the bookshelves as they are for sitting down for a (three course!) meal. Whatever kind of bibliophile you are, here's a round up of the best spots to relax, read and have a bite to eat.
Foyles is a London institution: the sleek premises house thousands of books on everything from poetry to physics. The elegant aesthetic continues in the cafe where the serving counter resembles a book press. Sit down for a quick coffee, a full-blown meal or anything in between. Expect to find hearty salads and soups on the menu, too.
