Fodor's Review

This popular bookstore-cum-café is a favorite neighborhood breakfast spot. It's also a late-night haunt on Friday and Saturday, when it's open around the clock. There's a simple menu with a handful of special entrées, but many people drop in just for cappuccino and dessert. In keeping with that spirit, reservations are only available for large parties and carry a minimum order requirement. The "sharezies" menu of small plates, such as cured salmon and cornflake-crusted catfish, is a great bang for the buck at $23 for three. Catch a live music performance—everything from rock to the blues—here Wednesday through Saturday nights.
