Once & Again Cafe ~ Adelaide’s best kept secret, for coffee, books, gifts and events

Once & Again Book Cafe

Once & Again Book Cafe Founder, Judy Forbes

The Once & Again Book Cafe is an absolute gem located in Plympton Park, Adelaide.  The cafe manages to be light and airy, yet it is positively brimming with all things wonderful: pre-loved and new books on the topics of health, well-being, leisure and lifestyle; a range of beautiful gifts and artwork; great coffee and delicious snacks at reasonable prices.  The cafe also plays hosts to a range of events and it participates in important initiatives to bring about positive changes to the local community.  It is the perfect place to take time out for yourself or to catch up with friends.  Visit not just ‘once’ but ‘again’!

The delightful space

Founded by Judy Forbes, the Once & Again Book Cafe prides itself on offering a place of belonging, guided by the values of caring, community and connection.  The cafe is an integral part of the local community, engaging with customers and local business to create a special place of belonging.  Visitors are invited to help others through the wonderful ‘Suspended Coffees’ program.  Quite simply, when you purchase a coffee for yourself you can pay for a second ‘suspended’ beverage.  The money collected by the Once & Again Cafe for this additional drink is then distributed to local charities such as the Hutt Street Centre.  Benevolence via the medium of coffee!  There’s no finer way to spread compassion.

Catch up with friends over coffee

The Once & Again Cafe also participates in all employment programs, including the MatchWorks program which is helping to improve and enrich the lives of individuals through workplace training and employment.  Recently, David completed a six month placement at the cafe where his excellent service and coffee making skills impressed many customers.  David has grown in confidence thanks to this experience and he is now undertaking further training.
