Great food at the cafe!

The cafe has a wonderful selection of food. It is reasonable priced with a lovely area to eat. It will rival any gourmet food at other restaurant.

We were visiting the museum and decided to stop at the cafe for lunch. Usually museum cafes are boring and the food is dreadful. Not here. The menu is very interesting and quite delicious as well. The art museum is great...but the cafe is worth a stop on its own.

Unique delicious menu choices. I had a salad that was wonderful. My niece had a Grilled Cheese that I had to help her eat.

We enjoyed a soup and half sandwich lunch -- freshly prepared and delicious! You order and pay at the counter, get a number, and it's delivered to your table. We sat in the glass-walled addition with sunshine and view of a little garden area adding to a pleasant meal.

I had BBQ pulled pork sandwich & collard greens - yummy. Lots of selection, lots of seating, a very pleasant place to eat. Looks like staff eats there too.

The Café offers a limited menu but has a nice creative flair. Not much in the way of ambiance but the beverages (wine/beer) are fairly priced as is the food. Get a sandwich or salad for under $10 or splurge on one of the daily specials like Ratatouille En Croute or Escolar ( a fish I never heard of until... More

The food was good although overpriced as we expected. But the service was extremely slow and the "servers" were unconcerned & not helpful. The cafe was perhaps half full and the food ordered was cold sandwiches, so really couldn't see why it took over an hour to get our food. Don't eat here if you have a bus to board... More

I would return for the mustard chicken salad anytime I was in the area. There is no reason to leave that worthwhile museum during the whole day. I also enjoyed the tomato-basil soup. The sugar cookies were great too. The prices gives high value for the portion size and high quality. Hubby had the main salad, which I avoided due... More

The food here is amazing!!! Even if you are not an art person, you should definitely go to the museum just for the food. I highly recommend this! Also, the menu changes, so go back more than once!
