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.

Stumbled upon Bookhemian while surviving a rainstorm. Very cool place. We tried the marshmallow coffee which was amazingly delicious, and the Mocha, which was also very good. Both at ~80 bhat. As for the book shop part: Not so great if you don't read Thai. Very few books are in English. Be sure to check out the art gallery upstairs,... More

I read somewhere that the Iced Coffee with Toasted Marshmallow was this bookstore/cafe's speciality so that is why I visited when I was doing some sightseeing of Old Phuket Town. All I have to say is yum. Tip...don't save the marshmallow til last because it mixes with the ice and then it's hard to eat. Not cheap at 85 THB... More

My family stopped in here to enjoy a cold beverage and we were pleased when we saw a variety of iced teas and coffees on the menu. We had 2 x Thai Iced Coffees + 2 x Milky Iced Teas (for my sons) + a DELICIOUS chocolate brownie. Cost - 305 baht. The staff are attentive and friendly. There is... More

This is a masterful creation. A top notch coffee shop - with books, art works and a boutique cinema. It's modern, chic, eclectic and just excellent. As Melbourne coffee tragics this cannot be beaten. Congratulations to the owners Nil and Sak. Thank you!

Thank MADSemaphore
