The Cafe at Books & Books


Although this cafe does not offer a full vegan menu, they are organic -centric and have a couple of vegetarian alternatives on their menu. That said, it is a wonderful escape from reality -- between its beautifully displayed bookshelves and endless volumes, to its jazzy background music -- we love escaping to their different locations. The vision behind The Cafe at Books & Books is to celebrate wellness of body and mind, they are committed to using local ingredients and setting a positively inspiring ambiance. 


The CafΓ© at Books & Books is a neighborhood CafΓ©-Bookstore that brings
 Mitchell Kaplan's and Allen Susser's vision to the Adrienne Arsht Center campus and to downtown Miami, where we are now dedicated to creating a community-friendly environment for food and book lovers to gather.

Independently-owned and creatively-minded, as with all Books & Books locations, we strive to provide a diverse and carefully-curated book selection, complemented by a sustainable, healthy & hearty menu of locally-grown produce. Our focus is on conveying a passionate love of literature, libations and creative cuisine. Our commitment to customers' well-being and satisfaction informs all we do, as we serve up delicious menu items, lovingly crafted by Chef Allen Susser, alongside events, workshops & performances that highlight our commitment to the arts and culture. Our goal is to nurture the development of a warm and authentic gathering place for like-minded souls to discover and enjoy.
