This is a really well done cafe on Talang Rd (the same road that has the Sunday Night Market). I went with a friend and we loved it. The coffee was excellent and you can just take a book off of the shelves and enjoy a nice read. There was some really neat art there too.

Real nice little coffee shop/ art space / bookshop. Staff are nice and really great scrambled eggs, not to expensive and a good Thai hipster experience.

Great espressos and a good place to hide out in Old Phuket Town. Service is fast and prices are very reasonable.

I really love the atmosphere in this cafe. The coffee is also great but I disappointed on the cake. My first at this cafe was great. This is the main reason that I keep coming back to the cafe.

Good coffee and great atmosphere! Enjoy spending my day-offs in this nice coffee shop! You can also give away books of yours to the store. They will be very happy to take on your old books (which they did for mine!) Will definitely miss this place! :)

The first time we went into Bookhemian, we were looking for brunch and though they didn't have a food menu, the staff was very patient and explained they could whip up a tuna croissant or some scrambled eggs with sausages.

this place is on the walking street for the Sunday market in old Phuket Town. Great coffee, with a large range and a guy sitting out the back making new blends. Also great cakes. You can grab a book and read as you eat, great if you are by yourself. Also some funky art on the walls. Nice prompt service,... More

Friendly staffs, cool A/C for day time, Reasonable price (I got iced orange cinnamon mocha & a bottle of water for 95thb). I think it's worth to stop by.

Tucked away in Old Phuket Town, this coffee shop was a wonderful find. Enjoyed the best iced coffee with toasted marshmallow and a brownie and ice cream. Highly recommended!

I seriously love the concept of this cafe. You can read the book(hemian) while having your coffee. We tried that ice coffee with marshmallow topping. Absolute yumm! I'd definitely recommend it.
