Welcome to Chapter - a book café and tea shop located at 442 Mt Eden Rd in the Mt Eden Village, Auckland. The shop had a name change (it was previously called the Tea Time Café) following its renovation in mid 2005.
Chapter is an independent book shop specialising in the romance fiction genre, which includes contemporary, fantasy (including futuristic, magic, paranormal, time travel, vampire, witch, werewolf, etc), historical, hot, humorous, regency and suspenseful romance books. The shop also sells selections of mainstream, chick lit and crime & mystery fiction. The books are imported directly from the USA to provide you with the latest releases as well as classic titles from your favourite writers.
We would be happy to search for any romance fiction titles that you are seeking and order these in for you.
Chapter is the location of Auckland's original tea shop. The shop has a wide range of loose leaf teas (black, green, oolong, white, flavoured, herbal, fruit, organic and decaffeinated), tagalong teas and tea accessories. Chapter's café serves the full range of teas, espresso coffee, delicious cakes, savoury treats and yummy cookies.
