The Book Lounge
Cape Town‘s Book Lounge is perhaps the cosiest and most iconic bookstore. It’s situated on a corner in the city’s East City district, and the passionate staff are always willing to lend their insights and opinions. The store’s inviting atmosphere and eclectic selection of books will keep you occupied and relaxed for hours on end, and they regularly host popular launches with in-store interviews. If you’re in a rush to pick up a quality read, there’s a wide selection laid out in clearly marked sections, but if you have time to relax, there’s a lounge area and small coffee shop downstairs with a selection of tasty snacks and hot and cold drinks.
