Going to the downtown library just got more swanky, y'all.

The Library of Virginia recently announced a partnership with popular Carytown restaurant Can Can Brasserie to open a Parisian-style bistro and bakery in the lobby of the Library on Monday, Sept. 19.

"We are thrilled to help bring one of the city's best-loved restaurants to downtown Richmond," said Scott Dodson, executive director of the Library of Virginia Foundation, in a press release. "Paul and John Kincaid and their team at Can Can are excellent partners. We cannot wait for our patrons and the downtown community to enjoy their amazing food in the Library as we head into our 200th anniversary year."

Hours of operation are as follows: Can Can Café will be open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., with indoor and outdoor seating. The breakfast items will include: "fresh-baked pastries and lunch will feature soup, salad and sandwiches, as well as to-go pastries, desserts and other items. Can Can’s signature coffee service will be available throughout the day."

Kincaid, co-owner of Can Can, noted in the release that, post-COVID, people have been asking about their morning coffee service.

“Countless people missed a beautiful location, quick coffee and pastries, and a chance to get out of the office and have a quick meeting," he said in the release. "Opening Can Can Café in the Library of Virginia, we're happy to be able to offer all of those things!”

The release notes that limited free parking for Can Can Café will be available on Level B1 of the Library’s parking garage accessed via entrances on 8th and 9th Streets.
