A warm welcoming and unusual café-bookshop

The Cook Book – St Just’s Café-Bookshop

Feeding the Body and Mind!

There are friendly staff, daily papers to read and books… about 5,000 second-hand books in three rooms upstairs, on the stairs and in the café as Bosorne Books spreads out.

To tempt you while you browse our books are home-made cakes, delicious cream teas, seasonal soups, cheese teas with three Cornish cheeses, baguettes, breakfasts and “the best coffee in Cornwall”.

We have been awarded the top rating, 5 stars, for our standards of food hygiene every year since 2012.

Please note the Cook Book is a mobile phone-free café. There is no wifi.

The Cook Book is a great place for a meeting or social event, with catering ranging from nibbles to a full buffet.
