CAFE NOTE Pocket Edition


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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Great EDC Notebook 5 Star Review

    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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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!

  9. Perfect EDC notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th May 2019

    This planner/stationery geek has tried a LOT of notebooks and planners, looking for that perfect, Goldilocks notebook that will let me plan on the go, take notes if I need to, make a quick shopping list, scribble down that profound thing I just read, all while not weighing a ton and fitting into the small handbag that I carry.

    This is that notebook. I know from a lot of trial and error that Tomoe River paper with 3.7 mm grid is my handwriting happy place. The Nanami A6, B6 slim, and A5 grid notebooks are all wonderful, and I use them all. Those notebooks, though, are desk companions. This one goes with me everywhere. The bookmarks are so handy, and the cover is durable and attractive enough that I don’t feel like I need to invest in a leather jacket for it. Superb addition to the product line!

    One important note for other notebook enthusiasts: this “pocket” notebook is not the same size as what most of us consider to be pocket notebooks (3.5” x 5.5”). It is a fair bit larger than that, but a useful size all the same.

  10. Pocket Cafe 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2019

    This is *perfect*, please make this forever. It's the perfect size/form factor for my pocket original-style bujo/to do lists/sanity planner since it easily slips in everywhere while having enough room to lay out everything I need to. I used to keep one of the B6 Idea Note booklets for this purpose, since I wouldn't be afraid to mess them up/*use* them, and somehow the flexible cover and slim form factor give this the same 'feeling', in spite of the cover feeling surprisingly luxe feeling, and it has bookmarks!!! A pocket at the back!!! A pen loop! (which I don't currently use, but it tucks away so cleanly that if you really didn't use it, you could slice it off. The pocket is a bit narrow, but it serves my purposes. I do love notebooks that close (mine tend to get tossed around my bag quite a bit, and while the cover is sturdy, I tend to wind up with open notebooks that got crumpled), but it's perfectly slim enough that a large binder clip holds it shut. Nothing new or original to say about the Tomoe River paper, it's perfect (I love the white) and the grid (23 x 40 per page) is a good size for a mini notebook. (I keep thinking I might prefer dot grid, but I actually like the regular grid for this) This is a gorgeous little notebook, but even more importantly it's a *functional* little notebook. Already don't know what I'd do without it!
