In case you needed another reason to go to the Fayetteville Public Library, I've got one for you.

What's happening: 641.DELI recently opened inside the library. It's a part of its major expansion that was completed in early 2021.

The verdict: Bravo for not compromising on quality or taste. My $5 hot turkey sandwich with provolone, kimchi slaw and sriracha mayo on ciabatta was just what I wanted. And there are basic grab-and-go items like cold sandwiches and salads.

  • 641.DELI makes for a nice place to take a real lunch break instead of just a snack for anyone who’s planning to camp out at the library and hunker down on work, school or reading binges.

The intrigue: Library director David Johnson told us he wanted the library to be a community space where anyone can spend all day. Offering affordable lunches helps make that possible.

  • Everything at the deli is sold at enough to cover the cost of food and labor.

1 cool thing: Just want a little something substantial? The deli offers rice and beans with roasted onions, carrots, celery and tomato for $1.
