Cheap Eats -- Bookmark Café

Help support the Lafayette Library and Learning Center by sampling their delicious cheap eats.


Published:

The Bookmark Café may be small, but its substantial menu provides hardcover-quality fare at paperback prices.

The names of dishes play liberally off the café’s location in the new Lafayette Library and Learning Center: From the Da Vinci Code wrap, a tasty combination of turkey, lettuce, avocado, tomato, and creamy basil spread, to the vegetarian Phantom of the Opera, with mozzarella, tomato, basil, and roasted eggplant, to the Finding Nemo, a panini with chunky tuna, pickles, and celery. All sandwiches and salads (such as the unfortunately named Captain Underpants Caesar) are $6.95, while the Pete’s a Pizza, a pepperoni or cheese personal pizza, and the Who Moved My Cheese? grilled cheese sandwich are excellent kid-friendly options at $4.95–$5.95.

To wash down your meal, the café offers beverage options that range from Izze sodas, to smoothies made fresh to order, to delicious Portioli Italian coffees that come with a complimentary mini cookie. Round out your meal with a serving of fruit salad or a fresh-baked pastry.

Kid-Friendly:  Books and board games entertain younger customers, and the courtyard provides a safe place for kids to play. Artwork by young local artists decorates the walls.

Supporting Education:  The Bookmark Café’s lease money goes directly to the library, so eating at the café helps support the library and learning center. 

Outdoor Seating: The café terrace is an excellent spot to soak up the sun while reading a newly checked-out book, or just to relax and watch the world go by

Bookmark Café, 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Lafayette, (925) 283-9999. Breakfast and lunch Mon.–Sat.
