The Library Restaurant in St Pete

Ever enjoy a delicious meal at The Library downtown? Maybe brunch and a cocktail while discussing your latest read? I’m of course referring to The Library restaurant! 📚🍴

This 4.5 star rated restaurant is located in the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and we highly recommend. It was unknown among several friends we polled, thus one of the reasons I’m posting here.

While The Library may lean towards being a bit of a hidden gem due to its inconspicuous location, it’s still been full on both of our visits, so I’d highly recommend reservations! Most recently, we visited for brunch…and for Colt’s approval of course. If you can’t tell he certainly approves!
We’ve had great meals and service on both of our visits. And if you prefer to eat al fresco, they have a great outdoor patio area! So take this opportunity to surprise someone close to you with a reservation, especially if they love books/reading! The ambiance will certainly win you some points. Cheers!
