Woolfson & Tay Independent Bookshop & Cafe, London

4.0
#360 of 419 in Shopping in London
W&T was an independent bookshop with a cafe which served homemade lunches (Southeast Asian flavours) and lovingly baked sweet treats. Named among Time Out London's Best London Shops 2012 and 2013, and described by Evening Standard's ES Magazine as a "dream bookshop", it offered a small, carefully hand-selected range of general titles with particular focus on international literature and noteworthy editions.

PLEASE NOTE: W&T HAS CLOSED DOWN. THIS FB PAGE AND THE WEEBLY WEBLINK IS FOR POSTERITY ONLY. [PLUS, WHAT'S ONE TO DO WHEN THE SHOP NO LONGER EXISTS? OUR FB PAGE IS AN EXCUSE TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH FANS, REGULARS, AND EX-CUSTOMERS... YES, WE LOVE YOU THAT MUCH! :)]
