Small, but perfectly formed

Member Profile - Madras Cafe Books

What an individual customer may want from a book store will vary. Today of course, some good nosh and strong, hot coffee is often an integral part of the ancillary service for many potential customers.

The difference at Madras Cafe Books at 165 Madras Street in downtown Christchurch is that a small but full-service, quality bookshop runs in 50/50 symbiosis with a relaxing cafe serving delicious home-made food, great coffee and plenty of other drinks, including wine and beer. It all melds with the background music and the vibrant chatter to make a destination to savour.
