My friends and I often come here between afternoon and evening performances at the American Players Theater. It's great for getting a salad or sandwich and then spending a few minutes looking at the books. They have a limited selection of beer and wine. Just...More

We went to a dinner before going to American Players Theater. The food was great and all local. Great homemade fresh noodles! Good coffee. It was a bit weird eating staring at the bookshelves, but we found some books we absolutely had to have.

Wide choice of sandwiches, fruit, finger food and some desserts. Very casual and the offerings change daily. This is, as they say, a kitchen, not a fine dining establishment. But the people are charming -- the owner directs at APT -- and very accommodating. Take...More
