Reviews for Cafe 43

Very good lunch option even for those not visiting the library. The food was excellent and a lovely mix of comfort with inventive touches. Everyone was able find something on the menu including our vegetarian and gluten-free fan. Always hard to chose between the grilled cheese and the shrimp entree.

The patio is really nice and had great views of the river. It definitely has an Austin Texas type of feel to it. The menu is upper scale but offers a lot of comfort food options. I went with a group of over 10 people. The service was good and the staff was friendly.

I had one fancy chicken salad at Cafe 43 after visiting Dubya's Library next door. Granted it tasted dry, and the 2 pieces wheat toast was slightly burnt on one side, it was a pretty good light lunch. The accompanying salad existed of a spring mix with cherry tomatoes and a light vinaigrette. For dessert, I had a white peach sorbet. I believe the menu changes with the seasons. The next time I visit Cafe 43, I should really take advantage of the menu's variety.
