CAFE NOTE Pocket Edition

Calculated at checkout

Introducing the Cafe Note Pocket Edition!


This newest edition of the Cafe Note is slightly smaller than an iPhone 8 Plus, making in a great companion and EDC for your back pocket, backpack, briefcase or purse. It has 256 pages (128 leaves) and each page measures 92x155mm and is about the same size as our Takahashi Techo No. 102, which was in fact the inspiration! Please see the pictures for a size comparison to various objects.


The tough water-resistant vinyl cover has a leather-like grain and actually feels quite luxurious. Two bookmarks, a back pocket and a pen loop are included.


We hope you like this new addition to our family of Cafe series. It's perfect for on-the-go note taking, when all other options are too large, too flimsy and just not as cool.

  • Tomoe River white paper

  1. perfect size 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Sep 2019

    So I own a B6 slim and decided to order the pocket to see how it would work, and I have to say I love the size. I was a bit concerned it would be too small but it’s perfect, especially for my purse. I’m still holding out for an A6 though . Fingers crossed they’ll be in stock soon.

    Love the cover. Love the size. Love the paper. Love the grid.

  4. They keep getting better! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Aug 2019

    At first I was a bit bummed that Nanami Paper refocused their efforts on developing notebooks, but at this point I couldn't be happier about the change. It's awesome to have a company consistently developing such thoughtful products. I've owned a variety of their notebooks (Writer, Studio Note, Cafe B6, Cafe A6, and now Cafe Note Pocket) and I love finding all of the little touches and improvements added to each version.

    The Cafe Note Pocket is perfectly sized for pocket use and has an appropriately sturdy & flexible cover as well. Add to that the pen loop, dual bookmarks, and back pocket (my favorite feature!), and you have a notebook that is perfectly tailored to its intended use.

  5. Pocket Productivity 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Aug 2019

    I've used both the Cafe Note A6 and B6 in my past,
    and I'm about a month in, a quarter of the way through my first Cafe Note. This is a notebook every bit as useful as the other two, at a smaller size.

    The cover has so far stood up to back-pocketing, bag-pocketing and a water spill on the table. Still looks neat! The paper is feather-free and bleed-proof, as Tomoe River paper is, always. The page count means the book will last at least 3-4 months, for me, remarkable for a book this portable.

    I band it together with the Takahashi No. 102 planner, also sold here at Nanami, so what I have is a pocket-size office! If I have any caveats it's the ribbons, which are useful but feathering heavily -- by contrast, the Takahashi ribbons, about 8 months into a full year of use, have stayed neat.

    I complement this Pocket with a full-size notebook that largely lives on my desk, at home (look forward to an A4 "Desk Note," BTW..). Thoughts start wherever I am, and grow from there. Cafe Note Pocket is a great book to have wherever I am.

  6. Best cafe notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Aug 2019

    Of all Cafe Notebooks, this one is my fave. Perfect size, amount of pages and design. Would like to see maybe more vinyl cover colors such as burgundy or red, maybe navy blue? and also one in larger notebook with same vinyl cover in B5 size with off course 3.7mm grid and 256 pages.

  7. Amazing! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Aug 2019

    It's basically a pocket version of the Seven Seas, plus a built in pen holder loop. I love it!

  8. Love it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2019

    This is just an amazing notebook. It is a perfect example of its type: small, durable, and perfectly convenient. Of course, the paper is fantastic and the Nanami price point on bound Tomoegawa paper is unreasonably good. Can't recommend this highly enough for anybody who feels incomplete without pen and paper at hand.

  9. The Tomoe Grail! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2019

    I have been waiting for something like this ever since I went back to analog planning and note-taking.

    I currently have 2x Jibun Techo's, 2 x Hobonichi Techo's, a Hobo planner paired with multiple pocket notebooks AND a Nolty pocket diary on the go, plus various Tomoe B6 and A5 journals - and I'm not happy with any of them.....!

    This notebook should give me almost a years worth of lists, notes, daily event journalling etc and the paper loves my fountain pens - ALL of them!

    I bought two and Dave was kind enough to ship them to a hotel while I was visiting the US (saving me $50 or so in postage).

    This is the perfect size and quality - please don't ever discontinue them!!

  10. great little notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2019

    Love this book! I appreciate the smaller size. It doesnt weigh my bag down at all. The cover is very nice. I dont worry about setting it down on the table at the coffee shop. I really prefer the smaller grid size as well. The bookmarks are a veey nice addition. Overall I am extremely pleased with this notebook and will definitely be ordering more.
