Malaprop’s Bookstore & Cafe

55 Haywood Street
Asheville, NC 28801
Malaprop’s Bookstore/Café is an independent bookstore founded in Asheville, NC in 1982. We bring books, writers, and readers together in an environment that nurtures community and the joy of reading. We carry a carefully curated selection of books for adults, children, and young adults, as well as a large array of gift items. Malaprop's Café offers hand-crafted espresso drinks, treats from West End Bakery and coffee sourced and roasted by Counter Culture Coffee. Our menu features specialty lattes named for some of our favorite malapropisms. Today, our goals are the same as the ones we committed to in 1982: to be the best little bookstore in the land; to enjoy what we do while we’re doing it, and to ensure that bookselling remains a fine and noble profession.
