About Capitola Book Cafe

The Capitola Book Cafe is an independent bookstore that has been operating in Capitola, California since 1980.

We are situated on the northern coast of Monterey Bay, about 90 minutes from San Francisco and 30 minutes from San Jose. Our county, home to 275,000, includes a high Latino population and encompasses the University of California at Santa Cruz and Cabrillo College. In addition to a strong computer and high-tech industry, our area is also known for the great weather and beaches that make it one of California's most popular tourist destinations.

We have 5,400 square feet of floor space and an inventory of 65,000 titles. Though our largest sections are Fiction, Politics, Foreign Language, Business, Computers and Children's, we also have an excellent selection of greeting cards, magazines, and foreign and domestic newspapers.

For years the Capitola Book Cafe has been committed o a strong and comprehensive author series. We feature twelve to fifteen events per month and generally draw audiences of fifty or more. In general, our audience is composed of active and highly literate people who look forward to engaging the authors with questions and comments. Invariably, the authors we feature praise both the intelligence of our audience and the comfortable atmosphere of our store.
