Due to extreme temperatures, we will be closed Tuesday at 6:00pm-Thursday 11:00am. Please stay safe and warm, we will see you all later this week!

Welcome to the Library Cafe and Bar! Located on the west side of the University of Wisconsin campus, we are a cozy spot that serves up freshly made lunch, dinner and snacks as well as delicious coffee, craft beer and cocktails to our guests 6 days a week.

We proudly serve locally roasted hot and fresh Just Coffee — every day. Try our daily-ground Knoche’s Market burgers, fresh Batch Bakery buns, tangy Madison Sourdough bread, Spring Green Pesto, Kaufhold’s cheese curds, Old Sugar Distillery, Death’s Door liquors and more.

We take pride in our food and drink as well as in our hard-working customers, stop in today for a meal, a drink, or just to chat-we’d love to say hi!
