The 24-Hour Cafe – Libby Page


Welcome to the café that never sleeps.

Day and night, Stella’s Café opens its doors to the lonely and the lost, the morning people and the night owls. It’s a place where everyone is always welcome, where life can wait at the door. 

Meet Hannah and Mona: best friends, waitresses, dreamers. They love working at Stella’s – the different people they meet, the small kindnesses exchanged. But is it time to step outside and make their own way in life?

Come inside and spend twenty-four hours at Stella’s Café, where one day might just be enough to change your life . . .


If, like me, you enjoy people watching in pubs/cafes etc then this is the perfect book for you.

Not only does it have two main characters that you’ll fall in love with it also shows us so many different people and snippets of their lives. Not only from their own perspectives but also from Hannah or Mona’s, I loved this element so much!

I also enjoyed the flashbacks and descriptions of past events to help set the scenes better.

I didn’t want this book to end at all. I was savouring every last page willing it to last longer, the last 15% or so of the book was just so wonderful. The completeness of the loose ends and the very last sentence.

Such a simple idea for a story but executed so brilliantly!I rated this book a well deserved 5/5!
