The highly anticipated sequel to the international bestseller Before the Coffee Gets Cold, this book follows four new customers who hope to travel back in time in a little Japanese café. In a back alley in Tokyo, there is a café that has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. Local legend says that this shop offers something else besides coffee--the chance to travel back in time. With faces both familiar and new, Tales from the Cafe follows the story of four customers who hope to take advantage of café Funiculi Funicula's time-travelling offer and revisit moments with family, friends and lovers. Each of them must face up to their past to move on with their life. Kawaguchi's wistful and heartwarming new novel once again invites the reader to ask themselves, What would you change if you could travel back in time?
