Can Can Brasserie, the swanky French restaurant in Carytown, is opening a weekday breakfast and lunch outpost in the Library of Virginia at 800 E. Broad St.

What's happening: The state agency announced a partnership with Can Can to bring a Parisian-style bistro and bakery to the library's lobby starting Monday, Sept. 19. It's the latest cafe partner for the library space.

  • The cafe is run by Library of Virginia Foundation, which is a private entity.
  • It's the latest cafe partner for the library space since the Discovery Cafe, which closed in 2018.

Why it matters: Downtown saw a decline in breakfast-serving restaurants during the height of the pandemic, and workers headed back to the office need places to eat.
