Books for Cooks is a cookbook shop that also runs a cafe at lunchtime. The dishes all come from recipes in books they’re testing, so the no-choice menu changes every day. Check their Twitter feed to find out what’s cooking, and bring a bottle – there’s no alcohol license. Book-buying is optional but recommended: they have the biggest selection in the country.
