Webster's is a community gathering spot located in downtown State College, with a cafe focused on European-style coffee beverages (we only use organic, FT coffee/espresso) and a general used bookstore, vintage vinyl shop and event space. We make most of our cafe food items in-house, specialize in vegan, gluten-free & local, but have options for everyone, including meat-eaters. Our Sunday brunch menu features local farm-fresh eggs, local bacon or sausage and pancakes bigger than a hardcover edition of Gone with the Wind.
