Cafe Note A6 - Grid

Calculated at checkout
Max Purchase:
10 unit(s)


Sometimes available on Amazon Prime.

After many requests to chop our A5 notebooks down to a smaller size, we finally decided it was time to make our own original A6 notebook.

It's the same thickness and page count as our A5 Seven Seas (Crossfield, Standard and Writer) series - just half the height and thus half the weight. And, since it's half the weight, it's possible to ship one notebook inside the USA by First Class Mail (around $4.00).

Performance and paper are the same as our A5: 480 pages, white TRP, lay-flat design. The cover is different though - rather than use the coated-fabric cover we opted for a slightly smoother coated-paper cover. We actually like this new cover a lot  - as much as the A5's fabric cover. It also comes with a dust jacket, which you can choose to use, or not.

The pages are printed with a 3.7mm grid, same size as the Cafe B6-slim, except that it's a full grid.

We hope you like this new notebook - and actually, after working with various larger notebooks over the years, such as our Seven Seas A5, L!FE B5, Tsubame, and even our own Cafe B6, my first thought when I opened the shipment was "Awww...how cute!!!". But since this is a serious tool, it's cute in a way that, say, laser watches, explosive pens, and miniature tape recorders are cute. In fact, if James Bond carried a notebook, this is probably the one he would find most useful.

  1. Journal love 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2019

    I bought the Cafe Note A6 intending to use it as a journal. I write with a TWSBI Diamond 580 <F> with Pilot ink and it is a dream. It is small, and so can fit easily in my purse. I can fit a lot of writing on the page, and with 480 pages I anticipate that it will last for a long time. I have experienced no bleed through, and the ghosting is minimal - in fact, I like it. I will definitely keep purchasing these little notebooks.

  2. Great A6 Book 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Feb 2019

    I have the Hobonichi A6 but the printed set up did not work for me. I wanted a blank book I could design my own planning system in as well as having enough pages to use part of the book for journaling. The 480 pages works perfectly for this.

  3. Great little Notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Feb 2019

    I am just in love with this notebook, I wanted to make my own kinda, Hobo Weeks Bujo, I ordered one last year, and now I have all my planning, journaling and lists in it, I can't wait to see how I fill this book up this year. I will be ordering a new one for 2020 soon!!

  4. cafe a6 5 Star Review

  5. Excellent find! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Jan 2019

    I have been a Hobonichi user for a number of years. I have OFTEN wished for a book of similar quality to the Hobonichi A6, with graph paper only - no calendar, bells, or whistles - for journal purposes. Clearly a well made book, small graph/grid, smooth, this is a great find. Just perfect :)

  6. Thrilled with this impulse buy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jan 2019

    I purchased this on impulse because the added shipping was negligible on my order of two Seven Seas Writers, and because I joined the Hobonichi tsunami with an A6 Original. Am I glad! This is a fabulous companion to my Hobonichi, and a fine notebook on its own. Not even the A5 Cousin would have been enough for the additional notes I write on most days, not to mention lists, sporadic journaling, and writing on the go. This little lovely does it all. I'm delighted!

  7. So glad I made the switch! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2019

    I wanted an undated journal in A6 size and after a short time with another A6 notebook, I went ahead and ordered this because it seemed like a better fit for my needs: it takes fountain pen ink and my random water color so well splotches and the paper is so amazingly thin and smooth.

  8. the mail came... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Jan 2019

    And can't say how pleased I am!

    Just sitting in appreciation of a beautiful, well-made object. It's so very lovely. The grids are perfectly subtle, and I like the miniature size, which surprised me at first. Adorable and worth every penny!

    Now the problem is to actually get myself to start writing in it... but I anticipated the problem and have a Studionote on the way, too.

    Two will make it easier, right? (I don't know, so I'm now eyeing the slim b6 version.... three, three sounds better.)

    Oh no. This is turning into something. My first Seven Seas purchase and I'm hooked.

  9. in love 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Jan 2019

    I journal alot and as it was time to start looking for a new journal I've tried others, travelers notebooks, random dot grid notebooks, none really appealed to me and I ended up not finishing them and then I found this and I'm completely obsessed, I've fallen in love with this book, this size, this paper and i write everyday again and I know itll take a while because theres so many pages but I cant wait to see how my life progresses in it, and fill the pages with all the memories ! Amazing quality. Care in the packaging, and fast shipping. I love it! Thank you!

  10. Planner Zen 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2019

    The Cafe Note is the most perfect notebook I've ever own. When I gaze upon it, a choir of angels suddenly appear and sing major chords as a beam of light falls upon it from Heaven.

    I would reiterate all the other reviewers here, but especially Jam from 12/2018 who request that the notebook be made in other sizes.

    All of this PLUS superb customer service. Thank you, Nanami Paper!
