FAYETTEVILLE, AR – There’s a new place to eat in town and it’s in the most unlikely of spots. The Fayetteville Public Library.
Serving salads, sandwiches, and snacks, the 641.DELI provides healthy and quality meals at affordable prices. Ingredients are locally sourced when possible, and there is something for everyone including vegan and gluten-free options! Menu choices are a combination of made-to-order and grab-and-go items.
In keeping with the library’s mission, there is a Dewey Decimal Special, a cup of Ralston Golden Rice and Arkansas pinto beans in miso vegetable broth with onions, carrots, tomatoes, celery, and garlic, for just $1. They also offer a Soup of the Day which varies from day to day.
There are a wide variety of sandwiches to choose from. The Honey Bee features almond butter and bananas with honey on artisanal white bread. The Steak sandwich is a marinated grilled flank steak thinly sliced with provolone, pico de gallo, arugula, and roasted- garlic lime aioli on ciabatta.
If you are looking for lower carbs there are Curry Chicken Wraps with grilled chicken, cashews, cranberries, celery, red onion cilantro, and curry lime dressing all wrapped in a spinach tortilla.
