Book Ends Cafe Restaurant Review

: Sitting high atop Antioch University on its roof deck, Book Ends Café takes a little hunting to find, but it’s worth it once you get there. The small interior is basic, with only a few chairs and minimal décor; however, it's the outdoor patio that's the place to hang out, under red umbrellas and high above the din of the street. The menu is limited to basic breakfasts like coffee, croissants and yogurt parfaits with house-made granola; simple sandwiches; and healthy salads, including daily rotating farmers market salads. We like the brisket banh mi, the lemon flavor of the chickpea salad and the tasty ham sandwich with Emmental cheese and Dijon mustard.
