Great atmosphere, excellent service and the food is beyond what I expected for a cafe. Being able to browse the books while waiting for the meal is a wonderful idea, and often as not I buy a few when dining there.

We dropped in when traveling through and were surprised to find such healthy, vego and gluten free food options. The vego burger was divine. Very happy to know this place is available in Goulburn. The books and friendly staff are an added bonus.

This cafe is located right next door to Vinnies. This roomy cafe is spacious and the preloved books for those who just want to sit, read and have a cuppa this is the spot for you. No rush and no hurry with the staff. I ordered the Leek and Potato soup which comes with a bread roll and butter hit... More

Very friendly staff, offered toys and books to our kids. We had a lovely warm breakfast on a cold rainy morning. Beautiful atmosphere with the books.

Excellent for a quick meal or just to enjoy some of the books on offer. The Book Cafe as the name suggest entices you to look and perhaps buy one or more of their books. A great idea.

Stopping in Goulburn, we parked in the Main Street to stretch our legs after a decent drive. After looking at a few cafes, Café Book caught our eye, filled with locals and all smiling with lovely meals and clean plates in front of them. Simple, friendly country service, good country food and a huge set of shelves with books to... More

this used to be a great place to eat for lunch until it changed ownership, Now they burn toasted sandwiches and cannot even make a thick shake.
