From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Lido comes a story of friendship, belonging and never giving up on your dreams

Welcome to the cafe that never sleeps. Day and night, Stella's Cafe opens its doors to the lonely and the lost, the morning people and the night owls. It's a place where everyone is always welcome, where life can wait at the door.

Meet Hannah and Mona: best friends, waitresses, dreamers. They love working at Stella's - the different people they meet, the small kindnesses exchanged. But is it time to step outside and make their own way in life?

Come inside and spend twenty-four hours at Stella's Cafe, where one day might just be enough to change your life ...
