The million-copy bestselling series.

Toshikazu Kawaguchi’s heart-warming Tales from the Café, translated from Japanese by Geoffrey Trousselot, explores the age-old question: what would you do if you could travel back in time? More importantly, who would you want to meet, maybe for one last time? In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a café 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 Café Funiculi Funicula’s time-travelling offer. Among some faces that will be familiar to readers, 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 tale tells the story of people who must face up to their past, in order to move on with their lives.
