Now Open: Just 4 U Cafe in New Lenox Library

The cafe is open for business inside the library at 120 Veterans Parkway.

A cafe in the New Lenox Public Libray is open for business.

Just 4 U Cafe opened Saturday, March 29. Manhattan residents Debbie and Mark Vejvoda are the fifth vendors in 12 years to attempt bringing brews to the books. 

Hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday. They will serve hot and cold beverages, soups, pastries, sandwiches and more.

A sour economy and low traffic have been cited as the main reasons that Novel Brew, Windy City Espresso, Book and Bean Cafe and the Bookworm Cafe did not succeed in the space at 120 Veterans Parkway.

The menu and upcoming specials will be posted on the library’s website. A large, 20-ounce coffee runs customers $1, and sandwiches range in price from $3.50 to $4.50. Soups and salads are also available, in addition to muffins, cookies, brownies and more.

Has anybody here used Rollie's for car service? haha Good luck in the new location. From my restaurant experience, you need to be creative to make it. Try to cater biz/school meetings or something niche. We made more out the back door than through the front.

Am I the only one scratching his head over text shorthand in the name of a cafe at a place ostensibly devoted to actual literacy?

Why is this place not opening in the evenings??? Not one night!! The library is DEAD during the day which is what this business is going to be if they don't adjust their hours.
