The Café at Books and Books


Few places in Coral Gables feel like a escape from the hustling and bustling of our non-stop modern world, fortunately there is an oasis in the middle of it all that offers a slice of peace (or pie!) for you to unplug and make time slow down a bit.

The Café at Books and Books is lead by the father of New World Cuisine and long time Florida resident, Chef Allen Susser, who offers a simple yet delicious menu packed with freshness and his distinctive touch of American, Latin American and Caribbean flavors. This place is ideal for a lazy afternoon, a casual business meeting or a rendez-vous accompanied with a glass of rosè with dessert. They offer healthy options to choose from, or if you prefer to splurge just take a look at the desserts menu. On Friday nights you can enjoy live music from 7:30 - 11:30pm and also you can pay a visit to the Café after meeting your favorite author. The wine list includes selections from around the globe and their craft beer menu will make you think that you are at a pub and not a bookstore.

The Café offers catering services for business meetings, luncheons, school functions, and parties that can fit most budgets and food preferences.

This place is nothing but ordinary, few things in life are better than to be able to sit down with a delicious meal, or a perfectly brewed cappuccino with a book or with good company, and at the same time you will be supporting a local business that has a lot character and charm.
