Best Way to Taste-Test a Recipe (No Cooking Required)

Cookbook Bar & Cafe

The new central location of the Austin Public Library has received its fair share of fanfare, and deservedly so, but don’t overlook the genius – and delicious! – cafe affixed. Of course, the library cafe menu comes with citations. Featuring a menu curated from cookbooks you can check out on-location, the spot serves up tasty offerings and clever cocktails (Murder on the Orient Espresso!) in a bibliophile's dream setting – surrounded, naturally, by books.
