I visit the library cafe on at least two occasions per week and on most of these find the ambience very relaxing. The staff are friendly and I hear them offering advice on the food and drink options and have noticed that they regularly assist some elderly or disabled customers to their table. This reminds me more of a community... More

Ask my 10 year old where she wants to go for lunch and every time she replies, "soup & a roll in the library cafe". (Which, thankfully, is a much healthier choice than McD's or KFC). So, that is where we went again today. We have been in countless times over the years and have always enjoyed our lunch. Ok,... More

It could be nice but it was very noisy. In the middle of a busy library. No privacy. People gawping at every mouthful as they browsed books. Remember the caafe at Borders or even Waterstones - much better models.

Motherwell doesn't really have a proper coffee shop, so Kuppas Cafe serves as the next best thing. The prices are reasonable and the quality of the coffee is surprisingly good. The cheese salad sandwich took me back to school dinner days, in a good way. The library environment is ideal for a coffee shop, there's a good atmosphere but it... More

I use Motherwell Library a lot and on the first Saturday of the month I go there for a book club. The café that is supposed to serve the library is never open. On a Saturday afternoon the library is usually quite busy on a Saturday afternoon, but the staff of the café have decided that they don't want to... More

Nice quiet atmosphere with good food and coffee. Let down by unfriendly staff, who certainly don't seem the happiest or most friendly.
