Chapter One is an independent bookshop and café with a huge selection of fancy drinks, vegan-friendly cakes and a well-curated selection of literature.
It’s light and airy rather than dark and bookish, and the covers of the books really jump out at you when they’re not rammed higgledy-piggledy onto shelves.
You’ll find really good contemporary fiction recommendations as well as floral Chinese teas, good coffee and gluten free carrot cake.
It’s a writer’s place; it must be the cake that lures them. You’ll find authors dropping in to do events and signings as well as a regular creative writing group and a book group.
