The Book Cafe

Rawai, South Phuket

The Book Cafe is a used book store and juice bar in a quiet area of Rawai / Nai Harn, Phuket. We can be found at the corner of Rawai-Nai Harn Road and Suan Wat Alley.

We started off selling and exchanging used books but have since evolved into a cafe and juice bar.  Return one of our books or bring in your own books and we give you 50% credit. Our used book collection is growing and we have many popular authors including all the favourites.

Our coffee is freshly ground, the tea is herbal and we make our own flavours too. We are known for our delicious freshly-squeezed 100% fruit and vegetable ‘Naked’ juices, shakes and smoothies and our very own designed protein shakes. For those who like something sweet with their drink then you’ll be happy to see home-made cookies and other treats with some simple snacks.

The area is quiet and the ambiance welcoming and relaxed, have a light breakfast in the garden surrounded by the mountains, or sit inside for an afternoon’s chat and taste our freshly-baked goodies.

Make yourself cozy on the couch and gossip, unwind in the garden and take pleasure in the view, or chill on the floor cushions in the chill-out room.

We stock a range of organic health products too, including chia seeds, bee pollen, coconut oil, Colloidal Silver, Himalayan salt and Spirulina powder.

We also have a small room for hire, perfect for a workshop, teaching, a playgroup or art activity, or confidential enough for a meeting or consultation. Rates are very low, call for more details.

Look forward to seeing you at The Book Cafe!



  1. The Book Café is a juice bar, coffee shop and used bookstore nestled in a peaceful area between Rawai and Nai Harn, just 5 minutes drive from Nai Harn Beach. It offers a friendly and laid back atmosphere to enjoy the wide range of healthy juices and smoothies on offer, all made with natural ingredients and no added sugar or preservatives. You can also enjoy homemade snacks and treats such as gluten-free chocolate brownies, yummy carrot cake and organic ice cream. You can also purchase health products such as chia seeds, collodial silver, cold pressed coconut oil and organic bee pollen.

  2. I think this is more than a book cafe, it is like a small community where I could meet new friends and join laughter. Not only that, their homemade bakery and sugar free fruit smoothies are my favourite. Very relaxed and casual atmosphere inside… I love this place!

  3. I love to chill here with good books and tea in the afternoon. I can find rare books here, it is so wonderful to spend my free time with a lot of books. The other good thing about this place is that I could also meet new friends. Drinks and some food are not disappointing.

  4. Chilled out in the garden, drinking their berry, mango fruit and yogurt drink, with a wheatgrass shot and a sultana cookie. nice to browse their selection of second hand books, scattered around, a real book beats an ebook.

  5. I’ve just found their new location using the above map, they used to be near Sinbi Muay Thai but now closer to both Nai Harn and Rawai beaches. I love the casual atmosphere and huge collection of books. Reading while having wholesome smoothies and their very nice homemade bakeries is what I enjoyed very much. Loving books, this is a right place!

  11. Awesome little cafe book shop, hidden away from the busy tourist areas! The juices are great, I had an Energy Boost Juice and the carrot cake, wow, so good. Quite a big range of books but really it’s the welcoming homey atmosphere that I’ll be coming back for.
