About the Cafe

Dewey's Cafe volunteers

The Friends Cafe is a great gathering spot for caregivers, children, students, and individuals young and old. You can do homework, catch up on your reading, play games, work, or even just relax — the choice is entirely up to you. We offer all kinds of drinks and snacks, and soon we will be selling new items, too. Come by and check us out the next time you’re in the neighborhood or the library!

The cafe is run 100% by volunteers, the only library cafe that is in the East Bay. Our volunteers have dedicated themselves to creating a warm environment for our patrons over the years, and the addition of fresh foods and espresso drinks soon will make our cafe an even better place to visit. Please check back here regularly for more news on these and other great changes coming this fall!
