The Used Book Café is a library coffee shop created by Concept Store Merci. An uncommon coffee shop enabling you to read while enjoying a simple and homemade menu.

A quiet coffee shop with book galore… how does it sound? Run, do not walk, to the Used Book Café, this vintage tearoom making you feel at ease and want to stay for hours. And for good reason, the place is a genuine library from floor to bottom. It has it all to delight the bookworm in you.

Set across an inner courtyard featuring a lovely Fiat Mini, the Used Book Café enjoys a cozy and soft part, and a brighter corner, giving access to the Merci fair-trade concept store.

On the menu, fresh fruit juices and hot drinks such as lattes, chai, hot cocoas, detox herbal teas. We went for the daily special latte based on beetroot. We saw life through rose-tinted spectacles that day. But you can get more classic or plant-based version for an extra 50 cents.
