Watermark Books and Cafe
Watermark Books and Café offers hungry bellies food and drink while hungry brains guzzle books. The eclectic selection includes classic tomes (Watermark's summer book club is focusing on the Brontë sisters), modern fiction, and nearly any other pages ever sewn between a cover (click here to search for books). Beatrice and Virgil, the new book by the author of Life of Pi, makes a superb companion to critiquing Watermark’s chicken-salad translation of The Iliad (served with tarragon, chopped green onions, and walnuts). Or stay awake while hunting for staff picks with a caramel latte ($2.95/12 ounces, $3.95/16 ounces) with as many as a dozen extra shots ($0.75 each), or a specialty drink ($3.75/$4.75) such as the Jane Eyre, which mixes chocolate, coconut, and almond flavors with steamed milk and espresso.
