The Library Restaurant in St Petersburg

Published on 03/08/21: Ever enjoy a delicious meal at The Library in downtown St Pete? Maybe brunch and a cocktail while discussing your latest read? I’m of course referring to The Library restaurant! 📚🍴

This 4.5 star rated restaurant is located in the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and we highly recommend. It was unknown among several friends we polled, thus one of the reasons I’m posting here.

While The Library may lean towards being a bit of a hidden gem due to its inconspicuous location, it’s still been full on both of our visits, so I’d highly recommend reservations! Most recently, we visited for brunch…and for Colt’s approval of course. If you can’t tell he certainly approves!

We’ve had great meals and service on both of our visits. And if you prefer to eat al fresco, they have a great outdoor patio area! So, take this opportunity to surprise someone close to you with a reservation, especially if they love books/reading! The ambiance will certainly win you some points. Cheers!

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
