About us


The Original books@cafe in Jabal Amman is one of Jordan’s most Iconic and Revolutionary Establishments, Opening its doors in May 1997.  

books@cafe was the First Internet Café in the Middle East cultivating a reputation for liberating the local cultures and intellect while promoting
peace, equality and tolerance.

The evolution over the course of two decades is a result of the urban growth within its natural and social surroundings, bringing people together from all walks of life and offering a haven of bilingual texts, home roasted gourmet coffee, and international cuisine that can be found at affordable prices.

books@cafe is designed to be an oasis of freshness that brings people together in an atmosphere of peace, love, and diversity.

The continuing concept is to create a simple open plan that combines a café and bookshop in order to integrate reading and enrich knowledge in a social and colorful space over a cup of coffee, a tasty meal, or both.
