It is full speed ahead for the cafe planned for the recently-opened Dayton Metro Library’s downtown branch at 215 E. Third St.
Table 33 restaurant at 130 W. Second St. will open a location at the $64 million taxpayer-supported library.
“We have reached an agreement with Table 33. They are waiting for us to build out a drain and electrical,”Chuck Duritsch, the library’s external relations manager, said. “This is so they can produce the menu they want to offer.”
The cafe’s menu will include food and beverages, he said.
Duritsch said it is hard to pinpoint an exact date, but estimates that the restaurant will open sometime in late fall.

Duritsch said the cafe’s interior will include a counter looking out to Third Street and two tables that can fit four people each.
Seating will expand out of the cafe and into the library itself, he said.
Food and refreshments can be eaten on most places in the library, Duritsch said.
Chris Dimmick, a Table 33 representative, said it is yet to be determined if the cafe will offer a delivery service within the library.
