Connecticut Eatery Doubling as Library Is Every Bookworm’s Dream
Calling all book-lovers: Who wants to go on a road trip? This New England-based eatery is one-of-a-kind and a true destination for anyone looking for good eats and good reads.
Traveler Restaurant, located in Union, Connecticut right across the border from Massachusetts, prides itself on being a "personal library" for its patrons. Hungry locals and travelers can stop by for a meal off the menu, but Traveler's unique touch comes a little bit after that final bite. Every meal comes with not one, not two, but three free books, giving patrons a delicious parting gift for the mind.
Plus, if you're really looking to bring home a car-full of paperbacks and hardcovers, the restaurant's basement is lined with shelves of books available for sale in the style of a normal bookstore.
That's not to say that there isn't a great variety of food at Traveler Restaurant, as well. The Union, Connecticut eatery's menu features a little bit of something for everyone, from lobster rolls, wings and steak to pizza, sandwiches and salads. They're even open early for those craving breakfast and a book. It's a casual dining experience fit for the whole family, just off of I-84.
But what if you're looking to stay a little closer to home and still find new books on a tight budget? Here on – and beyond – the SouthCoast, there are so many cute little libraries where you find books for folks of all ages and reading levels – for free!
