Excellent meal!

We stopped by here on our drive to Chicago. The staff here was very friendly and helpful. Had the braised short rib with Ohio peaches sandwich and it was excellent! My father had the lamb stew and said it was also very good. The kids had the grilled cheese and one said it was "the best grilled... read more

We stopped here during our museum visit given the high reviews. I found the experience to be fairly average. Upon entering the cafe area, we barely received a 'hello'. The counter clerk was more interested in gossiping at a loud volume about personal business with a colleague standing nearby refilling one of the displays. When we were ready to order,... More

Really good food. Asparagus panini is great. Salads are tasty and they will customize if you need. Great atmosphere and there is a beautiful sun room at the end where you can eat.

Food is not superb but it's cafe style so don't expect gourmet but being located in the most amazing structure in Toledo (or region for that matter) The Toledo Museum of Art, please spend a day there to soak up all the art and beauty of this building, have lunch in an amazing place and learn about it's history...

I had a sandwich with tea and it was very good and the cost was reasonable. The atmosphere was pleasant and we enjoyed talking with other people there.

If the museum is serving Lobster Bisque, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND trying it. Excellent at a very good price. The small roll that comes with the soup is very good. The dining areas are attractive with artful decoration all around. Lots of glass in this dining gallery comes from the Glass Pavilion studios across the street.

One of my favorite places to enjoy lunch in Toledo. After visiting the beautiful Toledo Museum of Art it's easy to dine in the lovely Museum Cafe. The menu is fresh, creative and appealing. Definitely worth the visit!

Chef's special (ham & cheese panini) & turkey and Brie wrap w/ side salad. White sangria was lovely. Both of our meals were fresh, delicious, and had generous portions. Prices were easy on the wallet. Employees (cashiers & attendants) were friendly and gracious. I'd definitely include this cafe in your visit to this phenomenol museum.

If you read the reviews on the Museum Cafe at the Toledo Art Museum, you will see the inherent limitations of a travel review site: The "restaurant" category includes everything from cafes to fast food, to cloth tablecloth fine restaurants. This is an excellent cafeteria/cafe that provides a very good experience, but it's hard to compare it with a full-service... More
