If you're in the area this is a great place for a coffee break. The Thai iced green tea was delicious and there's a wide range of food. We had chive dumplings and a club sandwich, both of which were very tasty. Not super cheap...More

We cycled here for a cool down and a drink (just managing to secure the bikes to a smaller tree ...so they could really do with a security point for bikes?). The building looks new and is spacious inside and air conditioned. Comfy seating and...More

Very reasonably priced, good food, very comfortable. A good place for coffee and dessert, the fruit smoothies were good, and the Thai dishes well-cooked, with some originality.

Library Cafe is very nice place, for rest, relax and drink coffee with cake. But unfortunately food is average! Such nice place, but food isn’t such good quality, like interior of restaurant. It’s pity, but for coffee and good cake is definitely ok.

We came to diner here with my family. First no one spoke English...we wanted to order a glass of white wine. A common question in a restaurant. Nobody understood it...the concept of a glass was very unknown to them...ok, we ordered a bottle of water....More
