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. 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!!

  2. 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.

  5. Use it every day 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jun 2019

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this notebook. Couldn't be happier with the size. Easy to take anywhere and the bookmarks, as another reviewer has said, make this even greater. The paper is what you'd expect from Nanami Paper, the best. And the vinyl cover products it well. I ordered a supply because why not hoard something you love! Thanks for another great product.

  6. great for every day carry! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2019

    I’m thrilled that there is a pocket sized Cafe note! To have such great paper that can handle fountain pens, water colors etc. in a EDC size is wonderful. Thank you! I’m slipping mine in my Chic Sparrow personal notebook and am loving it for my bullet journal. I have the b6 slim and a6 sizes as well, but am thrilled to complete my set with this.

  7. Great EDC Notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2019

    I have been using the B6 Slim Cafe Note for some time now, but I think this is a better size for every day carry.

  8. Great EDC notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2019

    I have just about all of Nanami Paper’s Tomoe River notebooks and have been using them for years. They are the best. This latest notebook puts most the features I have come to depend on in a size comfortable to carry in a pocket all day. It is bound differently so only time tell how durable it is, but it does lie flat and looks like it will last. I’m looking forward to a blank paper version as well.

  9. Just what I was looking for! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th May 2019

    This Cafe Note Pocket Edition fits perfectly in my Gillio Pocket Agenda Cover. Perfect number of pages, two bookmarks which are very handy, and not too heavy.
    I'm a very happy customer, many thanks!

  10. Happy Customer 4 Star Review
