On paper, this looks like a fun and interesting place to grab a bite. But in person, Library Cafe is neither of these. For a cool September evening (about 60˚) it was surprising to find that the a/c was on inside the restaurant, making it...More

The girls got a night out here to wine and fine. The library cafe is a busy restaurant with an American cafe menu and a path bar. It's a fun spot to catch up with friends.
