For a small book shop they have a very well thought through selection of books. Its in a great location and its really worth supporting an independent retailer in my opinion. It is idea to have a browse then a cup of coffee. It is hard however to ignore some miserable staff. No all just some. I would have thought... More

I stopped in and browsed through the books before sitting down for a good cup of coffee. A most enjoyable hour!

Reading these reviews just goes to prove that you can't please all of the people all of the time. Jaffe & Neale deserves its excellent reputation and I was surprised to read any negative feedback. I'd say that the couple of reviewers who gave a poor rating are missing the point; what you have here, ladies and gentlemen, is the... More

I pay a visit to this wonderful shop every time I'm in Chippy. I never leave empty handed, or, thanks to their delicious coffee and cake selection, hungry. A couple of years ago I sought advice from the shop on a book for my 3 year old grandson to read to try and understand and come to terms with an... More

A brilliant,small, family run bookshop that you can rely on to stock a good range of well chosen books. The cafe is shoe-horned in amongst the books and spreads out into the market square. Their friendly staff serve excellent homemade cakes. Upstairs there is a selection of secondhand books, and a pleasant space for meetings.

We had large Americanos and a piece of carrot cake, which both have been really good. The staff is nice and friendly and it was fun to wander around and browse.

Lovely. Very nice coffee (black americano) and a delicious piece of something chocolatey. Very friendly helpful girl serving. Great bookshop, lots of lovely unusual books to tempt you, you definitely won't be able to leave without at least one. Looking forward to going again.

So, are you going to Jaffe and Neale's for the fine teas, great coffee, those home baked cakes where the potions are always large and yet you're sure you'll have room for another piece? Or are you going to the lovely selection of books covering all ages and interests? Why not just go for both! Great little bookshop in the... More
