Café Revue, a completely renovated 16-seat, counter-serve spot, is now open in Book Revue. Huntington’s landmark bookstore has long had a counter-serve café in its northernmost corner: Up until September it was Cook’s Scratch Kitchen; before that, You, Me and Tea.

Now, Patrick Nolan, Café Revue’s owner, is offering a menu that is brief but appealing: five sandwiches, $9 to $12, including a knockout spicy BLT-A with Benton’s bacon, arugula, tomato, avocado and sriracha mayonnaise on rosemary focaccia. Among the three salads ($8 to $10): frisee with bacon, dates, blue cheese, almonds and red-wine vinaigrette. There’s always roasted tomato soup ($5) and a soup of the day.

Café Revue serves drip and pulled coffee from Southdown Coffee (also in Huntington) and, on the sweets front, three varieties of cookies: dark chocolate chip, bourbon oatmeal raisin and mocha crinkle. They are $2.50 each or three for $6. (Nolan’s other business, Raquette River Baking Co., produces frozen, pre-portioned cookie doughs, which you can buy at the café.)

Café Revue is at 313 New York Ave., Huntington; 631-423-4455.
