  • The Cox Center: Where Bookends Cafe might get the Weisman touch.
Seen at the Cox Center’s Bookends Cafe wielding a measuring tape: Jimmy Weisman, founder of “Jimmy’s Serious Sandwiches,” the home of the famed "Garden Sandwich."

Central Arkansas Library System Director Nate Coulter said he’d like to get some “upgraded fare for our staff and patrons” and that Weisman seems interested. “He’s kicking the tires,” Coulter said.

The Cox Center, 120 River Market Drive, is used for meetings and has a used bookstore as well as gifts. Coulter wants folks using the Cox Center, including CALS staff, to get good food “at the right price point.”
