Traveler Restaurant: Free Books

I got the shaved steak sub and a book about President Eisenhower. Success.

Traveler Restaurant: Free Books

Breakfast, lunch, dinner served in a dining room surrounded by thousands of books on shelves. When you order a meal you can chose three used books to take with you for free (Overlooking the cost of the meal, of course). More books are for sale in a book shop downstairs.
