Waterstones Says

Another diverse collection of individuals are looking to partake of some time-travelling coffee in the wistful, poignant sequel to Kawaguchi’s Before the Coffee Gets Cold. Written and translated with immense charm, wit and tenderness, Tales from the Café is guaranteed to raise spirits and put a big, broad smile on readers’ faces.

In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a cafe which has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time...

From the author of Before the Coffee Gets Cold comes a story of four new customers each of whom is hoping to take advantage of Cafe Funiculi Funicula's time-travelling offer.

Among some faces that will be familiar to readers of Kawaguchi's previous novel, we will be introduced to:

The man who goes back to see his best friend who died 22 years ago
The son who was unable to attend his own mother's funeral
The man who travelled to see the girl who he could not marry
The old detective who never gave his wife that gift...

This beautiful, simple tale tells the story of people who must face up to their past, in order to move on with their lives. Kawaguchi once again invites the reader to ask themselves: what would you change if you could travel back in time?

“Calming and engrossing”

A truly lovely book, easy to read and despite how short it is it's completely engrossing. I really hope we continue to get more tales from the cafe!
