The Next Chapter Bookstore is the perfect place to...

Our homemade French sweet & savory crepes are made with our own special recipe sweet and savory organic buckwheat crepe batter, prepared right in front of you on our authentic crepe double griddle which we had specially flown in from the origin of crepes, Brittany France. Please visit our "Bistro and French Crepe" page for our full menu.

Gluten-Free customers are welcome. We carry gluten-free bread from Rumi's Passion Gluten-Free Bakery in Plymouth. Most of our sandwiches work well on this gluten-free bread and the majority of our soups are naturally gluten-free. For a treat, try one of our gluten-free vegan cookies (wheat-free, dairy-free, egg-free)! For those extremely sensitive, please keep in mind that we do not have a gluten-free kitchen, but take great care to keep our gluten-free items out of contact with everything else. If you have any questions, please ask our baker, Kat, or one of our baristas, Amber. Amber has lived with Celiac's Disease for several years and is very knowledgable!

Our innovative espresso bar coffee is a true marvel, Fair-Trade, Organic and Locally Roasted by Great Lakes Roasting Company. We guarantee the very best quality at an affordable price. Check out our page “What’s Brewing”.

If coffee isn't your thing ask us about our Adagio Loose-Leaf Teas, Flavored Steamers, Smoothies or Fresh-Squeezed Orange Juice!




Our shelves are fully-stocked and browser friendly. We maintain an eclectic selection ranging from Best-Sellers to Local Authors. We also have one of the largest and most diverse children's section you're likely to find anywhere.

Our vision began in 2007 when we were shown a store front in the lovely, historic downtown of Northville, Michigan. We saw something special in the opportunity here, and we were excited to make our dream of an independently owned bookstore and café a reality.

We hope to create an inviting atmosphere for book worms and coffee shop lovers in the downtown district of Northville. This is the “next chapter” in our lives and we welcome you as guests and friends as we set out on this new endeavour.

Our store front has a great view of the town square, where many gatherings and events are planned and hosted throughout the year.
