At The Library, the familiar aroma of coffee, the promise of a delicious meal, and the anticipation of friendly buzz will offer a reprieve from the daily chaos. It is where the community as a whole comes to refill their cup, both proverbially and, often, quite literally. You will find dining options both inside and outside, as well as at the bar. For walk-up service, our pastry counter offers coffee, tea and pastries throughout the day. We look forward to serving the community, visitors, and hospital staff alike.

    We booked a reservation for Sunday brunch at 9:00 am. It was our first time there, and our waitress, Erin, was fantastic! The food was phenomenal, and the atmosphere was excellent. We'll be returning!

    Service and food was excellent. This was our first time dining at the library and not sure why they sat us right next to the door when there are obviously plenty of other seat available in the restaurant. It was a disappointing start, but the service and food saved the evening.

    Well I was so disappointed. Recently had a conversation about this place and we decided to give it a try. The establishment is nice in decor and atmosphere. But you come for the food right? I wish I had just grabbed Chick-fil-A. I ordered the salmon and he ordered the prime burger. I found my salmon dish to be lack luster. It was cooked perfectly yet lacked seasoning. The gnocchi with greens were also missing some seasoning. Oh where is our waitress to get me some assistance. His burger was cooked to order by temperature, yet was completed as requested. We immediately pointed out it was not made to order and she was like oh well I'll come back and see if you are okay with it. No offer to get it corrected and didn't come back for over 10 minutes. Ten minutes in dining is crucial. Needless to say, the service needs work.

    Perfect venue for our wedding anniversary celebration. Our wait and serving staff were polite efficient and professional. Nice touch was the little glass of Prosecco to celebrate. Thank you. Food was lovely. Husband ordered the chicken and I had the orchietto. Both delicious. Cauliflower appetizer enough for two and always tasty. Nice vegetarian dishes available. Was there on Thursday but good to note half price wine on Wednesday’s. Decor is lively some cozy nooks and for larger parties seato g to accommodate longer tables. We will be back.

    I would like to see more wingback seating especially when you have a party of 6 and more. It would have been nice experience the mood of the restaurant.
