This restaurant is now Cosmopollitan And it is better than it ever has been. Good for lunch or brunch or a glass of wine. Better atmosphere than before

Unfortunately Café Musée in the Nevada Museum of Art no longer exists. It has been replaced by a restaurant with a limited menu of mainly burgers. Food is greasy. Service is slow. There are many good nearby alternatives.

This cafe has something for everyone! The daily specials are typically excellent. The salads are consistently delicious. And the location, inside the Nevada Museum of Art is very special. Be sure to combine seeing the collection and lunch!

Nice quick cafe run by the Wine and Cheese Board across the street. Fresh, unique usually pureed soups and locally sourced salads as well.

Café Museé in the Nevada Museum of Art is a great place to have lunch in Reno. They have excellent soups, salads, and sandwiches served in a large high-ceiling room near the museum's entrance. There are specials every day—try the petite beer-battered fries, they are outstanding! On the third Sunday of each month a Jazz Brunch is presented, with a... More

We usually eat there on the Sunday where they have live jazz, so it's a crowded occasion which puts the cafe to the test. Actually, it's an outside caterer operating a restaurant a few hundred feet from the museum. The menu is brief, mostly sandwiches, quiche, soup, or an omelette. We always have the last one, with wild mushrooms and... More
