We now have a Bookcase Café open in shop hours and on evenings when there is a special event on.

We are serving different types of hot and cold drinks, selected beers and wines, cakes, scones and tray bakes, light lunches, snacks, and afternoon teas, in a relaxed, comfortable book-themed space.

In the café we also have a display on the State Management Scheme that operated in Carlisle, as Bookcase was the board's headquarters.

We are hoping that the addition of the Café will be welcomed by visitors and regulars alike - now you really can spend all day at Bookcase!
