This place is refreshing and special in many ways. We stopped for coffee twice, at the beginning and end of a day trip to Madison. The staff is very friendly and brings the coffee to you. What a pleasant change from the places that charge a lot for coffee and then have you stand and wait before you receive it in a paper cup. This place is cozy and comfortable with a delightful terrace and pleasant interior. The cappuccino is frothy and rich. The oatmeal raisin cookie is loaded with real oatmeal. :)

I went for the Anna Quindlen event. Entered from the easy parking and stepped into this quaint, well stocked, cozy Cafe and Bistro. Pomegranet Iced Tea was fresh and delicious. RJ Julia book store is amazing. Staff has left comments on shelves re: books - it's a perfect place.

We enjoy going to this cafe. We had coffee and dessert- hostess cupcake. The cupcake was very good and flavorful. Thry order them from a gourmet bakery. They also offer a lunch menu- salad and sandwiches. The service was friendly too.

The cafe and bistro at RJ Julia bookstore has delicious food and is a warm and welcoming spot to eat lunch, read a book, and chat, whether inside dying a chilly spring day or seated outside during the summer. Cozy pillows on the window seat are inviting and the wait staff is friendly and sweet.
We had chicken salad in 7- grain bread and the day’s special flatbread with spinach, artichokes, red peppers and Gorgonzola. Local soda from Foxon Park is great, as are the coffees and desserts, which we didn’t try this visit.
