I had the fried chicken and a dessert and wasn't impressed by either. I was there at 7pm for dinner and service was pretty slow. They could have used another server or two.

Stopped in for a night cap and dessert on way back to our hotel. Cozy cafe, personable service, good desserts & cocktails; can even grab a book from one the shelves to read while dining.

"Bookstore Bronco" drink is fabulous! So fresh a taste and surprisingly light. Not at all what I expected.

We didn't eat here but had a drink. Our wait person was wonderful. I had an excellent martini. The ambiance is great. I love the idea of the 'book store.'

Whenever we are in Seattle we have to visit the Library Bistro & Bookstore Bar. It has a fun, cozy atmosphere and is a nice place to have a quiet drink and visit with friends (hate the loud, thumping music so often found in bars)....More
