About The Cook Book
A warm, welcoming and unusual café-bookshop…
… home-made cakes; delicious cream teas; soups that vary with the season and the ingenuity of the cook;; Cornish cheese teas; baguettes, breakfasts and home-baked ham; “the best coffee in Cornwall”.
Our café-bookshop is children and dog friendly.
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.
About Bosorne Books
We have about 5,000 second-hand books, sorted by genre, in three rooms upstairs, and an eclectic selection downstairs.
Buying them is easy. Parting with books before we have read them is difficult. We love books.
Apart from second-hand books, we also sell Evocative Cornwall Calendars and Christmas cards, a small selection of local cards, strawberry jam, Tregothnan Teas and Origin Ground Coffee.
