A fresh, tasty cup of coffee is the perfect thing to start the week with, for me, and The Library is a great Long Beach gem for coffee fiends.
Crafty coffee concoctions, a variety of teas, and tasty snacks abound at the the smallish shop on Broadway.
The space is excellent with a quite atmosphere (even though it has a piano in the second room), and is often a hangout for college students. There are also shelves of free books for readers to share and soft cozy couches and chairs to relax and read in while sipping at a handcrafted drink.
If you're in the Long Beach area, and need a good cup of coffee on the way into work this definitely a great place to swing by, or come by at night and spend some time just relaxing with a book.
The Library is located at 3412 E. Broadway.
