WHY It’s the best secret café in Santa Monica.
WHAT You don’t have to keep this quiet: The café in Santa Monica’s fabulous Main Library offers good, made-to-order-food including turkey burgers, panini, wraps and an amazing range of salads (chef’s, Cobb, Caesar, Greek, apple-walnut). You can eat in a large, sunny courtyard, and savor the fact that almost everything on the menu costs less than $8. Breakfast brings omelets, pancakes and good coffee.
WHO Quiet, studious types.
