“La Place has fantastic food.”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Do not miss this place if you are in the city. Thoroughly enjoyed the soups and salads. The view from the top floor of the library was fabulous.

“Interesting Architecture & Wonderful Cafe”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Wander through to see the modern architecture, lighting, and fun furniture in the library, and the famous "Mouse House" in the children's area. Sometimes the library has Special Exhibit that's worth checking out. The cafe on 7th floor is an outstanding eatery at reasonable prices. Views are nice too! (Free wifi).
