Clarence Corner Book Shop


Clarence Corner Book Shop is one of those shops you wish you’d taken the time to stop in years ago - a cosy narrow affair with warm wooden shelves containing one of Brisbane’s best, although compact, collections of second hand books interspersed with the odd new edition (the shop holds about 95% secondhand to 5% new tomes).

For lovers of literature, children’s older and contemporary classics and the arts in particular, this place is bookshop nirvana. For those who appreciate a quirky back courtyard to enjoy a cup of coffee and gourmet toastie, it’s a great spot just to drop in to. And as an extended community service,  well-brewed coffees are available for those who text from 6am onwards weekdays.
