I found this spot using Nift and I like that it has an urban feel to it with a decent menu. The food was okay but I do like how laid back it is and you're able to seat yourself. They even do hookah and I wouldn't mind coming back to try it with my friends!

Everything got a middle of the line review because we did not actually get to eat. Apparently there was some miscommunication amongst the staff and the cook did not come into work on New Years day, which we found out when we got there. So we had to scramble to find something else at the last minute.

We received a gift certificate to the Library Tavern and after seeing it was directly on my bike ride home from work and had some intriguing vegetarian options thought it worth a try. We had a great time and really enjoyed the food and the experience. We started with an eggplant puree which was exceptional, when I couldn't decide between two locally brewed draughts - a dark or an amber - they brought 1.5 oz examples on the house! My sister-in-law thoroughly enjoyed the chicken kabob, my wife and I shared a Shiraz salad, humus and falafel. The falafel was a bit weird and disappointing, everything else fine. We lingered to participate in some of Trivia night, which was fun and not intrusive. Wish we had room for the key lime pie, but we didn't - next time, there will be a next time.

Even though they used yelp and open table to confirm my reservation, when i arrived for saturday brunch there were no tables. My party waited 20 minutes only to realize that the ventilation/ AC was poor. Once we were given a seating option we declined because we were all sweating. Never even had a glass of water

We sincerely apologize for you experience and we can assure you that this is not the normal experience with our reservation system. Our reservation system is inclusive of tables on the patio of our restaurant. Unfortunately, that Saturday afternoon was impossible to sit anyone on the patio because of the heat. As a result we were attempting to make sure everyone was comfortable inside. In the future we will manage these reservations much better. Thank you for your feedback.

We had reservation for a party of four people at 1p. We arrived on time, but they didn't have a table ready. At 1:45p, we still hadn't been seated nor was there any ETA for when we would be seated.

We had to call around to find another restaurant for brunch.
